The arch sealer stops a few inches further up and where it's double skinned the water gets in and sits there. Mine are fine though.

Good stuff. Mines ok for now but I could do with some new rubber seals around the doors as they are a bit tacky at the mo

Hopefully won't come back for long time

They said could come back as early as 6 month but shouldn't do for years???

Looks good, great result hope it lasts

My arches have been fine- was undersealed prior to me buying in 2008, just had it done again earlier in the month tho as it was looking a bit shoddy when it was in bits

Good job. How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking? Mines is fine, undersealed as soon as it got in the country and I touched it up a couple of weeks ago to be on the safe side. But good to know if I ever need it done. PM me if you'd prefer.

I wouldn't get overly hung up on Honda doing paintwork. I've seen work from Honda bodyshops that is nowhere near as good as getting an independent to do it.
