f**k hell... that really sucks....

I dunno about getting it fixed, but from what I gather, not a whole lot (hence all those cars with hail damage been sold cheap as)..

Where did you move to? Didn't think bowral had people young enough to go jumping around haha

radiator is straight forward to fix.. but yeah, doesn't help when s**t just piles up.

Is the roof liveable with?

if it was me, I would just get another car :?:

But I know that can be difficult.

I changed the whole roof on my mini when I had bad rust. It came up really well and I got a perfect roof from the wreckers for $30.00

I welded steel tubes into the pillars for strength so it was better than new.

I ended up with the classic mini red with white roof. The roof was perfect from spray cans. I had trouble with the rest fading over time as I used the wrong paint type.
