If you're comfortable with welding then plates are easy enough alternatively you can get new panels, Martin can get them in the shop on the top banner.

Well now you have the car, before you bin it take it to a body shop and get a quote for the repairs.
You never know, it might be worth doing.

Hmmm.....was it a surprise it's got a touch of rot? ;)

Here's what I keep after getting rid of what I no longer require lol



I've done so many now that I have a template to make the repair plate.

Em if it's behind the lights, it'll be elsewhere too.

Check the boot floor, the sills and mounts between the chassis and body. Wouldn't be surprised if there's more.
