there are so many cowboys around and shortcuts - even plating if not done right can cause serious corrosion issues. best to use the right products in the case of the boot floor cavity fill.
That was my main concern with welding plates on, so rather than risk corrosion I epoxied them.

Not cheap, your Klium link was cheaper, what did it used to cost from BMW? Also I think the BMW ones were larger cartridges. edit just read your previous post and you state they are smaller :)

Are you thinking of using the Teroson on your car? have you or do you have plans for any other reinforcement or bracing?

Yep not cheap at all and you're right, the BMW ones were larger. I read somewhere that there is an audi equivalant part (also terocore 1401) - I need to find the part number for it.

I was thinking of doing the teroson only, no other bracing - as Redish have shown, cars with properly applied teroson are fine in terms of longevity. I also hardly use the car and also worry about long term corrosion with plating, the underside is already in good nick, just needs a good undersealing for even more longevity.

I have another dilemma however, I feel like selling up! thats the subject of another thread altogether I suppose.

It used to cost £300 for BMW to do the repair. That’s material and labour

I dont get how some people can say that foam isn't a good fix

Redish have proved that foam is a more than substantial fix if you cars not already cracked....
(Obviously if your cars driven really hard or tracked than you will probably have to carry out further precautions)

But plates and foam.... are more then enough for a car that's not driven really hard

I think unless your cars hammered every single time it's used.... cutting your floor to bits and welding loads of metal in there adding braces left right and centre is massive over kill .

Mines got resin and plates and thats more than enough
