Any feedback on how this repair went? Did Ching do a good job and has the repair held up?

Hi Guys,

For the others enquiring about rust in the sunroof.

I had the rust removed from my sunroof from a private Panelbeater in the Ottery area.
His name is Ching, his tel number 072 359 9161.
He did tell me I will eventually need to replace the frame.

He was extremely reasonable and from what I can see he has done a great job. The workmanship is very neat.
I have only used him this once but I was very impressed with him and his work.

Regards
Duncan
I have been in touch with him and hope to get him to check out my situation in the coming days.

Has the repair work held up since you did it?

I'm also considering have Ching take care of some other cosmetic touch ups - anyone have an idea of his quality for that sort of thing? (got some scraped plastics and few small dings on various panels)

Hi guys

My sunroof 2008 Model was also rusted,panelbeater took it out,treat it with rust converter and then cover the sunroof frame with fibre glass that the water can't get to the frame,it is now 6 Months ands all seems to be fine,however the rubbers shape around the glass wasn't that good anymore and managed to buy a good 2nd hand rubber where as the agents charged R3720.00 exclusive for a new rubber and the panelbeater sealed it propper.
