C-piller repair

Hello guys i just purched a escort few weeks back and have started some body work. I found some bog on the c piller near the bottom and strared to grind it out and found 2 cms length rust crack and one hole near the roof gutter. and when i press the other c piller it feels more tuff and the cracked one is slopy could that mean the metel there is weak and how much would it cost to get it weled up??

Re: C-piller repair

Metal is very weak, that severley compromises the structal integrity of the body, all over. Good to see you are going to get it done professionally, could be nasty in a accident if you bogged it up again.

Get a magnet to test for bog, if the magnet feels strong you got metal, if it feels weak you got bog :0)
