I've bought all new parts... The guy I bought from last year had told me the arches had been done, so I went back to him and got some compo....still taking a hit, but rather that, than pass it on to someone else. Besides she's my baby!! Lol
I've just powder coated the crash bar, a couple more weeks she should be ready

Blimey, you don't really see the damage until the quarter comes off!

I have a '99, and the passenger quarter is showing rust on the inner panels. (Drivers is perfect bizarrely, suspect a repair in the past)

​​​​​Is the wheel arch/inner panel a seperate price, struggling to find it on Lings, just the chassis panels and outside quarter.

Here's mine at the moment!
Looks okay from the outside, I decided to poke around after reading a couple of threads on here.

Not horrific £££ for new panels from Lings - I am guess the labour is pretty intensive!

Just over £100 is pretty good! (Number 11) The complete panel is a tad more at 1k! (Number 10)

I think my quarter is actually in decent condition, I expect if it's carefully cut out it can be reused. That is unless that inner panel can be got at from inside the wheel well alone.
