Wow, photos above of the work I've just had done at the same time as getting rear sorted after a light rear ending. Just had the rotted bits cut out and the rear plate plinth and brackets replaced, protected and a spray.

Mmmm that looks very familiar. What did you do for repair panels, or is it being custom made?
