Mk3 Rear Wheel Arch Repair

Video of a rear wheel arch repair to a MK3.

The repair panels are available here.

The guys think the rusting was the result of a bump to the arch that broke the body panel panel sealer between the arch and the inner arch which allowed water to get in to the joint of the two panels.

That caused the rust to form.

If you look into the sill area it looks clean unlike a Mk1 to Mk2.5.
