Thanks to all for advice. I shall scrap the car. Today I bought a 2008 Vectra SRi 1.8 petrol manual, 101,000 miles MOT till April, to keep me mobile. Seems all right so far, skinny tyres, seems like a big Astra.

I still have one Omega, my trusty 2.5 PFL petrol estate, which I brought to Brackley.
Is it not worth asking for a price on getting the welding done  :-\
Vectra sounds nice , any issues with it ?
read the stored fault codes ,clear them and check the fans work etc  ;)

The Omega has rust in front and rear wheel arches, and sills. I expected it to fail MOT this year, but it scraped through, with advisories on rear shock absorbers. But that right hand mounting looks major, doesn't it?
Only thing I noticed on the journey home from Bridgwater was a failed thermostat. I will check stored codes tomorrow. Car will need  a new car pass and spare key, when I get the log book.

a welded repair does not need to look pretty though ,just strong

Anyway , hope the Vectra pans out OK for you Terry
never had a vectra C , only a couple of vectra Bs
parts are cheap and plentiful ,
bigger than an astra ,smaller than an Omega  :)

It's feasible as long as you're not paying someone to do it.


Pretty straightforward repair if you're not too concerned about appearance.
