Good stuff Stuart nice to see you are getting there.

Yes rot in the inner wheel arch quite common had if on my first estate & that was only 17years old back in the day.Was expecting to see it on current example but as of few years back it was all OK

I think that a lot of B2 owners would get a surprise if they stripped out all the plastic in the boot areas. When its in place you can see nothing. I'm glad that I've caught the rust issue just now as it lets me get it dealt with.
The bodyshop are experts in fabrication etc, who usually work on 50 year old VW campers etc which have rust problems on a totally different level

The driver side rear arch is looking much better now.
Progress is ongoing and the car is looking much fresher

So many other things to repair, replace or refurbish now on the car before it gets used later in 2017
