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.

Went to see Tom Hobb's yesterday to get a sill welded and ended up playing were my jacking point gone ?.

Of the 30 odd sills he's done guess who's was the worst he'd seen

All sorted after 7hrs of work though, will post the progress photos when I get them

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.
