Hey Randy,
I've sent you a pm about possibly buying a kit from you.
Thanks, Chris.

Once the car was on a ramp and the exhaust removed it showed the extent of the damage. What a mess! Looks like it had been cracked for a while and the cracked metal had been rubbing against each other weakening it further so the patch up welding was quite extensive.
All done now and feels sooooo much better and solid with no rattling and banging. Pictures below.... and hopefully a good job done for the life of the car!!
Hey ktm400. I am looking for someone to carry out this work in Northern Ireland. Can I ask where you went to have it done?
Thanks, Chris.

It's all good. Thanks to some detective work from members on a local car forum we found the garage from the pictures. It's a place called Classic Marques. Already phoned them and I'm gonna get the car booked in at the end of the month!
Also, I've got the Randy Forbes kit ordered and hopefully on the way.
