Crunched rear corner Benimar Aereo 6000
Managed to crunch the rear nearside corner of my Benimar Aereo 6000.
This is fitted with a slide out motorcycle rack and the corners hold the rear light clusters.
Obtained a new pair of corners from RDH (very helpful people).
Removed both old corners and light clusters after drilling remaining rivets that hold in place. The new corners come as a standard fitting so had to cut them to match the old corners.
Then re-fitted using self tappers.
Removed the trim piece (that hides the joint between the rack and side body work from the old corners using a sharp blade, and then silkaflexed to the new corners.
Now looks fine. A bit tricky the whole job took about 2 hours.
