    CKLClive (banished from these parts) of Benzworx repaired some of my W202's rust. I say "some" as to repair all of it would have cost more than the car is worth. He also dabbed some Bilt Hamber stuff around the place so it should never come back. Although I did tell him that I wasn't that bothered about the perfect paint match I still got it. Seriously, I cannot tell the difference.

    Before and after:

    There was a scab the size of a ten-pence piece here somewhere:
