I had my doors realigned at a body shop, 40 quid and looks much better now. Might be worth a try

@Pudding what size tin of POR15 did you buy? I have my rear wheels off at the moment so I am going to treat the rear arches where needed.

I just got a starter kit which is pretty much tester sized pots, which was plenty.

Yours is in good shape  :happy2:
