    Look pretty rusted through on that pic above

    That's why I would never buy a "restored" car in my life...............

    That's your choice mate but having being a paint sprayer for the best part of 7 years proffesionally not DIY, I like to think I know what requires welding and what doesn't. On this occasion the arch didn't need welding if it did I wouldn't cut corners and it would of being done, but like I say it's your opinion
