Re: Boot spot weld

Lez completed all the work that was required and also wax oiled underneath for £300. Really pleased with the work carried out. He said the welds had only just started to go too. He has also taken photos before, during and the completed work for my records.

Re: Boot spot weld

My main concern is finding someone who has done this type of work before on a z3 and is aware as what to do. Would having it re welding work or do you have to get the kit and what cost would this be to buy and fit.

Thanks again Danny

Boot spot weld

Hello

After reading many posts on the above I am still unsure how to repair and by who? I have two failed welds on left hand side of boot and live in Bolton.

What is the price to repair.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Danny.

hi all

i've got a 97' z3 2.8 and at the front on the car under the radiator are two rubber pipes that then attach to a metal square shape pipe which has started to rust. Any ideas as to what the metal pipe is? And are they expensive to renew?

Thanks Danny.
