I went to honda today, they took some photos and told me to go to the honda approved body shop 5 mins away for them to have a look.
the problem, it seems, is the lack of paint thickness(sounds about right being a honda lol) and moisture has got into it and possibly gone down insida the door (however there is no evidence of this)
there are two options it seems:
1) replace both doors, take all my old parts out of the doors (type-r) and stick them into the new door, spray the doors and blend into the bodywork!
This i am not happy with really - because it could be a bad match and its only 1 year old tomorrow! plus the car is mint and i dont want both sides to be resprayed after only 12mths :bad-words:
2)do a local repair, which no one will ever see due to the trim covering everything up. however problem with this is that if it ever comes back(the rust) the the guy said that -that is that and there is nothing else that honda will pay for :bad-words: ..... that is awful i think.
So i am left in a bit of a situation, take a risk and protect the cars integrity, or half both sides of the car resprayed, new doors and lots of broken clips where they move all of the parts from the old door to the new one!
the dealer will call me tomorrow, what do you think i should do? also i have only just got the 3rd gear fix done, not happy really. what about asking for some compensation from them. :vconf: :vconf:
