Decided to tackle the rear arches on the mazda ready for mot then sale.
You may already know that I don't do bodywork as it is a dark art or voodoo or some such shit but fuck it!
Cut away the rot

Welded in a plate


Tomorrow I get to make a pile of filler dust on the garage floor Smile

put filler on

and sand too much off...


Repeat until really pissed off!


then paint it with grey stone chip below the line to match the rest of the car


chucked some normal grey primer on the upper part so it doesnt rust during the week


that'll do for now, fucking hate it!
might just flat it out and start over

Looks better than it did though (rusty) - that's a good thing.

How did you apply the filler? Used a proper filler plastic swipe action? That'll help get a better finish if you re-do it (i.e. less streaky)
