    Talking Rot.

    My S202 is lovely but a little scabby here and there. Grinding the rust away is the answer to getting it ready to repair but then comes the debate about etch primer, bondaprimer or anything else.

    Arch work, rot treatment, rolling and pulling.

    Aluminium Rot Claim - How thick is your paint?

    Having spotted aluminium rot on the bottom of the doors of my CL500 I contacted MB Customer Service, who advised me to take it to a local dealer for an inspection. I've just done that and, during the inspection, they measured the thickness of the paint with a micrometer. It was significantly...
