rust remover!

Post  jadelouise on Tue Jun 19, 2012 11:51 pm

does anyone know anyone who can repair my wing?
i've got a typical rusty wheel arch and want it sorted (properly) before it gets worse.

Thanks guys.

However much it costs is however much I'll spend on it.
It's a necessity so I don't mind how much it'll be.
About how much am I looking at?

Thanks Smile

That's what I was thinking, I've been looking on eBay & there's some quite cheap, it's just the cost of painting it afterwards unless I can get one the same colour.
