W123 Rusted Chassis
Hi all, I need some help. My father has an old w123 that is still running but there is quite bad rust in the panel between the boot and rear screen as well as at the bottom of the boot. I think due to hardened rubber lining of the rear windscreen. Also, there is rust in the rear arch and the jack up hole area. I wanted to check if I were to get the rust welded and done up + spray how much will it cost and is it advisable? Any workshop in Johor area that can help with this? Another option is to buy another W123 from a friend of mine whose body is good condition but engine is blown (spoilt). Then swop over the engine and stuff would this be more advisable? Thanks so much.

Probably easier to look out for a well looked after W124.
A rusted chassis cant be repaired whereas a blown engine can be swapped.

Re: W123 Rusted Chassis
Thanks for your reply. Yeah I know a W124 would be easier, but the problem is the car has been owned by my dad for 30years so has some sentimental value. I'm trying to rescue it but trying to see what options are available. Trying to retain the number and registration also.

Hi

While waiting for Johorean to response, why not call any of these workshop and ask for their recommendation.

Re: W123 Rusted Chassis
Thanks guys. Will be checking out a workshop recommended by a friend in Mt Austin this weekend. Will see how it goes. Been trying to solve the root cause of the rust or even after welding the rust holes, it will come back in a while.

So far my digging and investigation has revealed leaky rear windscreen rubber or area near that corner as well as front fender pillar area leaking into the car. Now having a headache on how to solve those leaks.

Thanks for the recommendation. Will give him a call if the workshop I go to doesnt give me the confidence. Too often they opt for the easy and hide the rust method instead of proper treatment.
