Did you say you checked the water drains??
To expand the seal - not seen that thread - I'll have a huntWhat about trying to insert a 6mm length of tube inside your existing seal,as someone mentioned in a recent thread!
He's normally pretty good and has learnt that pads grip better than claws on bodywork - besides the paintwork is pretty crap on a good dayMmm cat claws on your paint work
Decision to be made when it's removed - if it has more holes than swiss cheese I probably won't weld it but try to find a decent oneNew subframe or weld it?
I'm in agreement there - if it's silly price for a second hand crusty one then it will either get a new one (future proofed) or if repairabe I'll weld it up and future proof it at the same time.Trouble is if you can find a good one ,the breakers want nearly as much as a new one costs!
Thanks - I try to keep my threads "light and fun" like an SLK should be with the roof downJust stumbled on this thread. It is really great piece of writing by the OP. And love all the wise-cracking stuff, as well.
I like DIY - I also like people who document their car related activities - how else can I find out how stuff is done and learn stuff myself.I love me a DIY project like this bcos it gets the love, care and attention the car needs/deserves...
