Cutting out rust in Adelaide
« on: 26 March 2006, 12:28 PM »
Hi

Does anybody know of someone in Adelaide who will cut out some rust cheaply.
I am trying to get a 450sel roadworty here...if it does not cost to much it will be worth it as the car still has a good engine and trans seem to be ok.

Thanks
Andreas

Call a couple of lower-price used car lots - they almost always have friends/wholesale arrangements with back-shed bodyshops and can perhaps refer you.  Price should be about 25 - 50% cheaper then retail shops with signs and advertisements....

Hi Andrew,

Now thats a rare car. Made less of those than a 6.9 if I remeber correctly.

When I get home I will get you the information. This person has been recomended to me by a my crash repairer who specializes in fixing mercs (have met him through work as i maintain a small fleet of cars). I have not used the rust guy yet as no time and just bought a 6.9 which is being fixed as we speak. This bloke will cut out and fix the rust but not paint it. He is up north around Elizabeth way if i remeber correctly.

This guy must be good if my crash bloke has recomended him.

PM you soon.

Andreas
