    Scrapyard and cut them out or someone breaking an EG

    Personally I'd wire wheel n grinder them all the way back to metal, cut out the rust and plate it up! Less labour intensive than new inner arches mate! Mega money aswell I'd imagine

    i will post up pics of the rust soon but it is very bad. id even consider just buying another shell in better condition tbh. may have a look in scrappy or if there are anyone on here from aberdeenish with a shell they may sell then let me know. cheers for the help

    Is there a hole on the inner arch just by the sill? Mines gone in the same place and will just be plated up

    This is one of the main reasons i didnt go for a EG this time and got a EK. just can't justify knowing thats under my arch.. don't they get like that at 100k?

    pick me up off the floor lololol

    yes, when you get to 100k, they RUST. :Whistle:

    An EK can be just as rusty, mileage has nothing to do with it

    Where has all the common sense gone!?

    Its obviously due to location, how well its been looked after and cleaned, undersealed, the roads its been used on, winter usage etc etc
