    More rear wheel arch repair in this video, and correcting a whole bunch of mistakes I made in the previous video.

    Time for part 2 on repairing the rear arch and about the only thing that didn't go wrong was the weather while trying to do this. Ah well, it's all part of the journey.

    I can do many mechanical things but car bodywork I'm useless at

    Time for another Maestro video, this time dealing with the passenger side rear arch. Theoretically this should be easier since I had repair panels. In practice, however...

    First bath of the year for this old trooper. Even bothered to wax it. Hasn't deteriorated too badly over the winter and this year I'm hoping to tackle more of the historic filler and rust issues to keep things happy.

    Been spotted out on my errands a couple of times already this year. Probably the most famous Maestro in Maidstone at this point.

    Need to find the time to give it a bath soon, the bottom half is turning white with salt and I'd rather not have it turn brown with rust after all the work I've done.

    *Majel Barrett voice* And now for the conclusion.



    You can build rear arches out of front arches, which is good because I couldn't get rear arch panels for this side but did have some spare front wings.

    Pretty common the arch rust, inner and outer, rear box sections all go, making a good job and it looks as though its getting there

    Let's take a trip to the past where they did things differently, especially rust repair.

    It's a little festive treat this time around. Going for a drive in the Maestro, snow, surprise fox, fairy lights, tinsel... it's got everything and it's less than 12 minutes of your time.

    If you've been checking the videos out lately, thank you! I've noticed a steady increase in views and likes on the Maestro content so hopefully I'm doing something right and folks are finding the content useful.

    The videos are always a few weeks to months behind real time. At the moment, the Maestro is looking firmly stuck in the '90s due to some period accessories I've been collecting.
