Rear arch bubbling

Recommended Posts

Though car is back on the road, it stood for 3 years and in that time the arches started to bubble. One side is worse than the other.

Though I plan on keeping the car along time, budget and being realistic I won’t be getting the rear arches cut and replaced, so who has faced this and had it repaired, how did it go and how much? And how bad was yours?

Will post photos once figure how to.

agreed, if the car is a keeper then have it done properly, you'll waste a lot of time and money yet it won't look great and it won't be long before it shows signs of damage again.
