Many thanks Mick, but tried this guy and he no longer does welding work as he is on his own now

A bit south of you https://cshaynes.co.uk/

Carl @cbs autos in Nelson,not too far away and knows the cars inside out

That’s the one that no longer does welding.:+1:

Oh right,understandable I suppose

Thanks Richard - I’ll keep it as a back up if can’t find anything more local - cheers

Thanks Stephen

Where did you end up going for welding @Stuart_D?
Would be interesting to know as I am Manchester/Warrington based

Hi Ian - I struggled to find someone, but in the end I asked a guy who has a small garage in southport who has looked after the car for most of its life.
He has a guy who does welding for him, and met up with him - seemed to be a good guy, so it’s currently with him having sill / floor work and a full respray

Will let you know how it looks when I get it back if you like ?

His name is Dave and he’s on 07836 263473


Always interested to see how welding repairs are completed, especially mk3 as they come to that age. Would be good to see finished job…

Bit of a trek perhaps, but there is an MX-5 specialist in Rhos-on-sea North Wales (https://www.facebook.com/penrhynservicestation/) who does all welding repairs.
