Just joined. We have had our 2008 Suzuki Swift for 13 years. Has been totally reliable. Decided it’s time it had some tlc so have joined to find out what’s going on. My other car is a BMW 545i.

Needs a repair to rear door accident damage. Done just over 40,000 miles ready for a service. Good clean and detailing then I will look into what’s available

Hi may be repairable, but possibly replacement. Problem is there is also damage to where rear sill meets wheel arch. My other half was forced into a fence post by a woman coming out of the car park my other half was entering. Woman drove off. Not even sure she realised what she did. Will post a photo later

Always worth looking on ebay and local scrapyards might drop on lucky with a replacement door if it is too much work to repair. Plenty of people on here to help point you in the right direction if your ever not sure

This is some of the damage. I have sprayed it over with aerosol paint as temporary weather protection

You do right giving it a temporary spray keeps the rust away,
