The advisor was that some rust was "starting" on the OS sill, just under the sill at the rear where the rear wheel arch joins, you cant even see it, feels like a few bubbles under the paint, and can not be seen from the side. Recon I will get a pro to sort it now to stop it becoming a future problem.
What I was worried about the most was the emisions, but it absolutley flew these!
Will post a few pics of the corrosion for some advice please.
Whatever happens, I will keep this car, as I love it sooo much. Every time I see it I think "is that really mine?"
Sad really, but the shape and the drive are so perfect.
Sounds exactly what happened to mine Mike .. about 3 inches from the start of the rear arch and bottom of the sill .. mine punched through, you may well find the other side is the same, just not as bad.
Get your man to cut it out and sort, i would get him to check (and do if needed) the other side too.
Been a while since i've written on here o) but wanted to share the news that my '95 MX6 sailed thru her MOT this week, with no probs at all.
Love the car, etc. but have only put 3k on the clock this year (now 87k) - a combination of petrol costs and bad traffic make the motorbike a better commuting option.
So that she gets some well deserved use, I've loaned her to a trusted mate while he is between cars. Want to keep her indefinitely but got a tough decision to make next year with my daughter wanting to learn to drive.
Congrats Nasher, it's a great feeling when they go through. Hope my 'new' '97 sails through in 12 months.
That's the first time I've seen a picture of a 6 with roof open. Looks kinda funny when most sun roofs go inside the car.
