Hiya gents..

When fiddling around with the rear of the car i noticed the rear bumper mount, the outrigger from the chassis has snapped in half..

corrosion would be my main culprit, but in fiddling with it, the rust is only surface.

could they break in the event of a slight shunt up the rear?

the bumper is also slightly out of alignment, i guess a fabricated bracket would be the way forward?

Oh and there is this...

any idea as to why that would be there?

a dent repair, maybe?

Cheers H

Didn't your car have a big dollop of filler in the rear corner when you got it? I suspect someone has spot welded to the panel to pull a bigger dent out then covered the lot in filler.

The various tack marks to me look like what you might get from some of the dent repair techniques, I've seen a kit somewhere where you weld a rod to the dent, then use a slide hammer to pull it back out, and those marks look like what i'd expect from using it.
