SLSHOP’S UNDER BODY CHECK
Under Body Check: No classic Mercedes-Benz is safe from rust and corrosion. Of course, the SL is no exception. Despite excellent build quality, time and the elements can get to an SL. This Under Body Check gives a complete appraisal of the under body condition of your car. Consequently, we can find rot, rust, and degradation. From here, we can establish what needs to be done to rectify the situation.
”No better place to take your SL. Incomparable level of service, knowledge and understanding on R107s and well worth my 100 mile round trip to get my car seen by the experts. And special thanks to Mark for his specific support and communication on my car.”
WHY DO I NEED IT?
Rust and corrosion are two words that no classic car owner wants to hear. But understanding the extent of the problem is the first step to. So the main questions we intend to answer with this check are:
- ‘Is there rust?’
- ‘Where is the rust?’
- ‘How bad is the rust?’
- ‘What’s it going to take to fix it?’
WHAT DOES IT DO FOR THE CAR?
Understanding if there’s corrosion hiding beneath your car is key to the future of the vehicle. Without knowing if the structure of the car is sound, there’s little point investing money in it. Therefore, this check is designed to be a traffic light. Once it’s done, it prevents unnecessary work being done before the chassis and structure are sound.
WHAT DOES IT DO FOR ME?
Our Under Body Check is designed to give a full report on the integrity of a car. It covers the all-important metalwork and mounting points from front to back. This suits all types of car. Unfortunately, often the worst corrosion is hidden, away from the usual areas you might come across during day-to-day cleaning and maintenance. Many customers use an underbody check to help answer the ‘fix it or sell it’ question. Where your car goes next is down to you! Whether we embark on a program to get it MOT-ready or show-ready is entirely your choice. Ultimately, we aim to arm you with the right information to make an informed decision.
