Title: Roof/gutter rust repairs Melbourne
Post by: Andyman on March 26, 2014, 10:35:04 AM
Hi, recently bought myself a cf off a mate.. Mechanically she's a beaut but needs some gutter-rust love and side step rust repair (from leaking gutters). Anyone know of good people to use for rust removal in Melbourne? And any idea of costs for such a job?

Looks like a job for Benny's fibreglass roof replacement.

I've thought about fibreglass replacement roofs but have been told by some that it's a massive job and should be avoided if possible.. Any thoughts on fibreglass vs steel repairs? And cost comparisons? Other advice from those who have made these choices before much appreciated.

It doesn't look so bad that it would require a replacement roof. If you were in Brisbane I know someone that does good sheet metal work. It would cost you about $600 to have all the roof repaired.

Structurally she's pretty sound.. The pics show the worst of the rust and aside from a tiny spot near the back the gutters are pretty much rust free elsewhere.. There is also some minor rust around the roof rack screws but again this is very minor. If I were in brissy I'd hit you up on the sheet metal guy you know.. But alas I'm in Melbourne... Anyone know of a good sheet metal worker down here?
