Their had been a shunt repair before but to do these right you must get to the core where the cancer is..or your ride is short lived on the road. the previous repair man used brass rod tacked on ever inch or so . I felt it better to start over. and remove all the cancer rust that was impossible to get it. this was the next caretaker has proof that there is nothing hiding to jump out and bite you at a later date. I would say about 80 percent of the ( project cars) on the samba have about 7 to 10,000 in metal repair yet to be done. If you cant fix it yourself your in for a rude awakening . I service about 150 body shops . The problem they face is the shop overhead is ungodly and they need to turn cars that they can get oem parts for at a reasonable speed.. space is money , time is money ,waiting for parts ( cost money ) poorly fitting aftermarket parts do not even come close to original for fitment. Ill stop here because I can go on and on.
