    ah , ok ,, what about all the steel parts , are they aluminium too ,,
    Ive explained why waxol is not good these days Im not explaining any more , go do some research if your actually interested , stick with wax if your not.

    insstead of spending 50£ on a repair and then buying dozens of products trying to make it last , next time spend a little more on a better repair ?

    it does not work that way ,,, I wish it did , some days I put in a stunning repair on a chassis or an out rigger knowing that if it isnt treated it wont last a year ,, In a land rover chassis as an example , with rust all ready in there , and the double skin internally at the corners , the repair is usually at the lowest point , and as soon as its disturbed , cups full of rust and sand all migrate to the lowest point , soak in the water and start the rust process all over again , if its not protected its just like watching a monkey with a hand grenade ,, you know whats going to happen ,, its just a case of when

    210 is a bit strong if they welded over rust

    im not being rude at all...but spending loads on premium rust cures and stuff , its a bit late for that , all it wanted was a reasonble job then a couple of coats of epoxy over it and something sprayed behind

    all that stuff you dribled over the rust hole would have been ground straight off...couldve bought a argos grinder and 1mm and cut it back to clean steel for the sake of £20

    i dont weld other peoples cars , 200£ ought to have got it welded up right , not like its london prices out in norfolk

    i wouldnt worry about it ...im sure they wont be any more bother for a few years , prob more lurking away somewhere else

    fair enough and maybe but I didn't want to tackle it with my cheap £80 welder and the stuff I put on it is meant to kill the rust off and I put a few coats on a week before he came and did the work so hopefully, it is kept at bay for a little while

    I would do it for you , if you were local , its an hours work , bring the buns ,,,
    I know thats easy for me to say as im in NI
    but if your passing Ill sort it out . ,, hope some one closer sorts it for you though ,,, although if you can get to both sides , you could let it dry then seam seal it ,, keep things in better nick till you do get it soorted , but dont do it in the wet or you will lock in water.
