    Hi Gary.
    Most of the C15 can be repaired, parts art becoming a bit difficult in the body department, it comes down to how much you are prepared to spend.

      Hi Ant

      Not too concerned about the cost as I will be repairing over a number of months,so the major issue is obtaining the inner wing panels ,so if you could point me in the right direction,it would be a great help.
      Many thanks

        Gary.
        I think the inner wings will need cutting clean and plating, I usually plate the vertical inner wing and the horizontal inner flich as one to make a stronger job. It's a long time since we could get any inner structural parts as replacements.
        Thanks

          Any idea what I could be looking at cost wise for a job like this?

            Gary.
            It's very difficult to give a price for welding jobs even when you're looking at it, the holes invariably get bigger and more numerous when you start preparing the site. I try to keep the welding jobs to a minimum these days following the advice from my optician so I might be a bit out of date with prices. I know local garages here don't do anything for less than £100 and then charge on a time and severity basis. Good sound welding is never cheap, "Pigeon s--t" welding is a waste of time and money.
            Thanks
            Ant
