    Hi guys, This is my first post so please be gentle! lol

    Ive got a touch of rust on the rear arch of my e36, But can afford to have them replaced or professionaly resprayed.
    Any1 got any tips or D.I.Y guides? Could take a pic to show scale.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Pics would be a help, knowing a e36 it's gone from inside out

    Got any bigger pics?

    I've got the jist of it though and it has from the looks gone from inside out, when you clean the area up it will break open bigger than first thought

    To combat the tin worm I use a bunch of products made by POR 15, and it works a treat, you get them from a company called Frost, http://auto.frost.co.uk/search?w=por+15 I use this stuff extensively when restoring old classic minis as they are prone to rust and give it a thumbs up..
