Before posting this, I did look for something similar to see if this had already been asked so I apologise if I've repeated another post.
I have a 8 year old Ford KA which failed its NCT because of rust on the underbody. The chap at the Deansgrange centre said it'd be a case of small welding and a patch of metal could just be added. With this advice, I went to a body repair shop in Bray and a similar one in Sandyford. They both said that the job would be bigger than the car's worth. I'm not a car expert, and I'm sure they know what they're talking about but I'm just resistant to scrap the car just yet, knowing its age and milage (60,000 miles).
Could someone please advise me further on this? If it has to be scrapped, then so be it but if I could get this job done, i'd be very happy and would pay the going rate. Also, I must add, the car has been in my underground car park since the failure because my tax was up at the same time. So ideally, i'd be looking for someone who could pick it up.
Thanks in advance for any help.
