Will B posted a topic in Bodywork, Interior and TrimI bought a 1991 mk2f breadvan a month or so ago, it has a few months on its MOT. Upon taking it to a garage to get a fuel leak fixed and some welding looked at it now appears the sills are FUBAR and will require a good bit of welding. I haven,t got a huge budget for this so I am keen to know if I should just cut my losses here and now or if its worth stretching to get a solid little car that can survive a few more years. There was shoddy looking welding visible on the offside rear wheel arch that was done in a small shop in Wales or so I've been told. It passed it's MOT after this welding was done, though I cannot attest to the thoroughness of the test centre. I am very much new to cars and repairs and the like, though I can appreciate that with what little info I can provide it will be hard to give a solid answer. I'm at university currently so sadly cannot get pictures/ a better look at her. I do have a single pic that I took on the ~220 mile trip back home on the day I bought it, so it does still drive, just probably won't pass an MOT. (on an unrelated note I couldnt find a Mk2f breadvan in the drop down menu, It may be me being rubbish so please let me know)
zob posted a topic in Bodywork, Interior and TrimI had a rattle when driving at speed in my MK2F Bready that I traced to behind the diver-side passanger trim card. Took it off and found a right mess! The pipe that I presume the fuel line runs through (whatever it is its a thick rubber pipe) has totally rotted away with the flange that i presume used to be attached to the rear wheel arch section now rattling around (thus the noise!). The line rus through the arch so it seems water had been entering it's steel pipe surround and eaten through iut with time, then started on the pipe flange and eventually made a nice hole directly from the wheel arch into the car interior. I had been wondering why that rear window was misting more than the others - there must have been water pissing in through that hole whenever I drove in the wet... Here's a video First things first - why aren't there plastic arch liners on both of my rear arches?! The front arches have them - should the MK2F have them on the rear? If not it seems insane - I have a bunch of hoses in that arch coming from the fuel pump that are in direct line of fire from the wheel. Not to mention a whole load of angles, knooks and crannies where water can spray into. I can't see how I can get to the area to do a proper repair job - especially as this line (which I presume is fuel but who knows) is running through the hole. Is it worth just cleaning it, treating it and then caking the whole lot in a mess of body filler and just hoping for the best?
