The Repair to the rear of the bus.

Right as i said in a previous Entry, The bus got a shunt in the rear by a BMW driver. the following pictures are of the repair i carried out that was beyond the repair centre at Perry's in Aylesbury, I wouldn't trust them with a push bike based on that Information.

This is the damage caused by the rear end of A BMW when it hits you pride & Joy


Bumper off valance out and the Paint Taken off to reveal good clean Metal, Not surprising really replaced the quarter about three year ago.

The damaged corner cut out revealing the damaged battery tray.

Battery tray removed ready for a clean up prior to the replacement.

Another shot of the cut out Metal.

Battery tray clamped in place prior to the spot welds being Done.

Minor repair to metal work behind rear quarter, before the rear corner is replaced.

Rear corner Added continually moved around the joint using spot welds this helps keep the heat to a minimum preventing heat distortion to the panels.

when i cut the quarter out were the original panel was pressed the tin was quite thin, To enable a good repair i added a strip of steel along the inside of the repair for a little extra strength, You can see the penetration marks from the spot welds.

Skim of Filler, Ive never done leading may have a go soon it would be a better option, A quick rub down is all that needed. That's the last picture i took. Yes i know painted it and put it back together on the Sunday didn't take a picture, Trust me you would never know it had happened and the red oxide was so easy To match !!!!!!!!
