How bad are your wings,,would it be worth cutting out the rust, and having new metal inserted.

I cant see the wings in the link as being genuine, thats a hard word, but the price is good

Thanks Malcom

The rust is in two patches, near the join with the front valance, and then on the opposite side near the bottom of A pillar.
I already need a cut out and weld job on my doors, as they are so hard to find. I want to keep the car original but just feel mainly due to quality body shop prices that it is difficult.

I live in London but would be happy to travel if you can recomend someone

Problem is the colour match, on most colours there are many shades, including light shade, dark shades, yellow shades, and blue shades. These shades are not located on your colour code and can only be gauged by professionals. Get the wrong shade; it will stand out like black and white

I think someone else posted a similar question recently, and in theory it does appear to be a good idea, as said colour match is the problem, but I would suspect that they are now using the latest waterbase paints which have the one and only redeeming factor that they are a good colour match.. ....
Why not ring them up and ask as many awkward questions as you can think of..then order one wing and check the colour match and fit..
