paul0 is the man for this! if you've got the tools and the time, its possible to do a good job cheaply. the door can be a bitch to get off, if the pins are nice and rusty! skirts are a piece of pi55, and obviously the arches are a pain. what paul did was cut out all the rust, and weld new plates in, and then smoothed them into the original rear quarter panels. the thing is he has all the tools there, and the space to do it. if you haven't got the tools, then i'd get someone else to do it.

i just realised your in scotland, ummmm! maybe not paul then! if you've got the time, a garage and another car to get you about, get yor mate to weld and then take your time and do it yourself. be cheaper, and more satisfying
