Fatboy Posted August 14, 2006 Share Posted August 14, 2006 Morning! My Rangie failed its MOT last week on a number of issues - perforated fuel pipes being one I therefore had to open the little hatch to get to the fuel pump so I could replace the corroded lines. Now, up to this point, I thought my wagon was in fairly good nick (1993 LSE) - Chassis fine, front wings sound, sills replaced etc. When I lifted the carpet in the boot, I was horrified to see daylight through the floor - for a good area in front of the edge of the boot. It also looks like it goes beyond that although the arches seem okay from the wheel side. I couldn't pull the whole carpet out because of the LPG tank but would like the car MOT'd ASAP. So the question is: When the back is this bad, what is the usual extent of the corrosion and how much work is there in replacing the metalwork? I remember Fisha talking about chequer plate but can also recall stories of needing to replace goal posts etc... Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
