    Hello I'm Ben from Burnley,
    I have recently purchased this MOT failed Copen. The corrosion is quite bad but I intend to repair it, I removed the rear arch liners, bumper and boot carpet and this is what I found...

    I think I've got my work cut out.

    Materials shouldn't be too costly so I'm going to repair it. If everyone just scraps these cars for the sake of a few hours/days work there will soon be none left. Cheers for suggestion though.

    I feel like every week I see a copen on the Facebook group being scrapped for parts due to a little rust.
    Glad you're trying to keep this one alive (even if it would be expensive/hard work)

    Looks like hard work! I hope everything goes to plan and you are able to salvage this fantastic car from the scrap heap!

    I’m not so skilled at the bodywork as you’ll need to be - good luck! But for what it’s worth I spent a fortune at a coachworks getting rid of the rust on mine (almost as much as I paid for her...) and I’ve never regretted a penny - absolutely a car worth rescuing! Enjoy.
