I am glad you have possible evidence who the culprit was. I hope the driver fesses up for you. Probably got that much paint missing it wants a respray.

Yep, thatís the worst one I have seen too!!

Usually the jacking point remains intact, Iím sure Tom will have it as good as new shortly.

Hi Scott.
Wow that is/was a lot worse than my sills, but having said that even on mine you could see the jacking point had started to rust, all these cars are going to have the same problem as time goes on, i would think that Tom could be in work for quite a few years from all the sills he will have to repair if owners decide to go down the route of repairing them.

It will be good to see the before and after photo's together cheers Arctic.

Checked the timing for the 4th or 5th time since replacing the cylinder head, just to absolutely rule that out as a cause for my cold rough running.


Thought it was fine the last 3 or 4 times I checked, this time it appears to be a tooth out. Didn't have my locking tool to hand, so next weekend I'll have to have a go at getting it timed properly.

Drove it 50 miles west, test drove something newer, then drove 50 miles east again.

After a walk with the hound, I filled the boot with an old carpet that had originated from Mrs MB's 75, and some other tat and junk, then drove it to the tip.

It needs a wash, but then again I cut the grass instead
