Hi guys ,

Unfortunately my beloved accord Type r (Iíve owned for over a decade) has failed itís MOT due to rust , itís in a weird place near the engine / inner wheel arch..

The car itself has s full service history with genuine Honda parts and every receipt from every owner since new, so it drives like a dream, solid gear box , full cambelt changes at prescribed intervals with all associated parts changed at same time. The interior is immaculate as is the paint job..

I hate the thought of scrapping it, but at the same Iím struggling to find welders I trust to do the work, especially as it may involve moving some major components etc..

I donít want to scrap it, would much rather an enthusiast took it on or I found a way to fix..

Any advice on selling it in this condition or if there are specialists that could safely take on that job would be well received..

Thanks

Ben has a mate who owns a breakdown company so costs aren't that extreme

Sounds just like Marks Car, stunning looking and he had to spend 7.5K on welding.

7.5k ?! Ok I love it but I think my wife would divorce me if I spent that on welding ..

I guess I find out and if not make sure she goes to a good home !

Could have spent 7.5k on a garage and I wouldnít be in this predicament!

Don't scrap it!!! The ones which will live through this difficult period and are salvaged, surely will rise in prices as they get more rarer.... We can only hope lol.

I have recently find some rust in the bulkhead after spending roughly 6K refurbing the car....

I am thinking of taking it to pro-tect they look pretty gd to me.

What was you trying to say 'dog'? :agree:

And to the OP I would get a quote to find out how much it will be to repair, before scrapping it. :agree:
Lapping!
