    And when do you think you will be taking new enquiries?
    Interested to know your thoughts on reinforcing a car that already has resin injection...

    Hi Joe,
    Hope you're well.

    Sorry, I missed this enquiry.

    We're back to normal now so please feel free to enquire.
    The best way would be via email (on our website here): http://redish-motorsport.com/ContactUs.html

    Interestingly questions Joe;
    Does the car show any signs of spot weld failure or even crack?
    Can I ask what year and mileage the M3 has please Joe?

    We could help, but the only process we've trialled so far is fairly invasive to remove the structural resin before carrying out the welding works.
    It's not to say you can't weld with structural resin inside - it's just we haven't tried that yet.

    We have tested a process for removing structural resin, and then going onto reinforcement work of the Rear Axle Carrier Panel, so it is possible - it just requires some additional labour time to remove the sound deadening pad, seam sealer inside the boot, then carefully cut the Boot Floor panel away (later welding it back together OEM style) to expose the Rear Axle Carrier Panel 'rear box section' then also cut open that piece, drill down to break and loosen the structural resin, remove most of it in blocks/chunks, and then chip away at the remaining smaller pieces bonded to the inside Rear Axle Carrier Panel 'rear box section'.

    Feel free to ask any questions you may have and we'll do our best to help you.
    If you'd like to make a booking for a Rear Axle Carrier Panel check we can offer a couple of versions.

    Underside visual check with report £40.20 including VAT
    Underside & Internal borescope camera cavity reporting (rear interior remove & install) £140.70 including VAT.

    Best regards,
    James :)

    Thanks for the info James, however I have the car booked in elsewhere for next month.
    From a very quick visual, the back left mount appears to be starting to crack in the usual place. I was assured it was clear when the resin was applied less than 10k ago. .. Not a good sign for the future for cars with only resin.
    Might be worth you making a video of welding an old panel with resin on the opposite side to see what happens, as this could be an issue in a lot of your future repairs.

    Wasn’t the resin an oem fix?
