Can anyone recommend someone for car rust repairs?

By 31 January 2014 5

Hi Guys,

I have discovered some nice rust on my car around the windscreen recently and was wondering if anyone on RA could suggest someone who will do a good job on it.

Thanks in advance, as always.

Hi Paul,

Thanks to previous dealings from a family member and RA I found that Canberra Bodyworks in Queanbeyan was great. The staff were friendly, not as expensive as other places I obtained quotes from. They did an excellent job on my car- I was very impressed with them.

Hope this helps!

Cheers

Is the rust all the way through the metal? If just surface rust, why not doit yourself? A wire brush and sandpaper plus some bog and primerpaint will fix that.

What sort of car? Rust is like an iceberg, you only see a small portion of it on the surface. Getting a solid quote might be difficult so don’t expect to get out of it too cheaply.

Thanks for the advice KarlV. I will see what they think it will cost.

Everyone else, the rust is pretty much through, around the windscreen.

Car is a Commodore with 179 000 km, so not really at the stage of everything else being stuffed, but then not a car that really is worth much either. Apart from the rust, the car is really tidy and roadworthy. Being an ex NSW car, it’s been scrutinised regularly and I can’t standing driving anything that’s damaged or broken.

I have owned the thing for a about 2 years now, and it doesn’t really owe me anything apart from maintenance of parts that wear and require regular maintenance, except for a window lifter and an alternator. So it’s not really worth my hassle, debt and everything else to replace it at this stage, even if I am keen on an upgrade to a wagon.

No worries! Best of luck. Hope it all works out well (and not too expensive).
