    Early days but sills and arches i think. That said the arches may only need some remedial repair depending on what i uncover.....not even got a welder yet but getting the prep work done now. April should hopefully bring a vat free day at machine mart so i can get a new welder.. whatever happens it will be going back on the road now

    Sounds very reasonable that. I need to pull my finger out and get mine welded up.

    Looks in better nick than mine. What area are you in?

    Lol....just need a welder, sills, wings, time, money, new head gasket, new suspension and a million other things and it will be like the day it left the factory.

    Estates are few and far between now so you wont have a massive amount of interest but that said there arent too many around for sale either, post some pics up and a price and see where you go from there. I maybe interested dependent on condition and price as i have an estate and the tailgate is rusty round the glass area.

    Best way to sell a Cavalier

    Hopefully you have and its great that you have chosen to come to an owners club to ensure the best route for the cars future. In fairness there is more traffic on the facebook side of the site but there are also more idiots and non enthusiasts on there too putting it at risk of someone wanting it to break fir parts for profit or worst still ending up on the banger track. Some pictures would be most helpful along with an idea of price and location too. Bear in mind that a few weeks before xmas may not be the best time. Very good luck and i look forward to seeing some pictures.

    Sounds cool. How long a course is it? Wouldn't mind a short welding course to refresh my skills before I get started.

    I understand your situation as I was in a similar position myself. Nobody wanted to know my last estate car and I didn't have time to do it hence it sitting there and ultimately getting scrapped. Sadly these cars aren't trendy enough to be worth peoples time as they don't have a huge following or value...not say like a split windscreen vw camper van. You will just have to learn to do it yourself, mig welding isn't difficult to do, it just takes time to learn to do it neatly. Could you not enrole on a welding course at your local college? I did a car body repair course years ago just to learn the basics, one night a week for three hours. I will be doing mine myself this time as that will be the only way to get it done.
