  1. Hello all Do you have any experience with hard solder on 205? I found out my (sun)roof might be leaking and I took out al interior to pump out 5 liters of water. I will drive without headlining and floor for some time to see how and where the real problem is. I was planning to remove my sunroof, but not sure. If this turns out to be the problem, The decision might be made. Put now checking the forum i see a lot of sunroof removals that I feel like not done very proper. E.g. just masking the rear holes with putty and or just kitting an alu plate. Mine is not a racecar... I have seen a youtube though on tig welding with CuSi filler. (so actually hard soldering) Or do Brit's say brazing? Looked very nice on the spot welded and sealed joints which that are always a weak point on 205s. Also this might be nice to holder a roof skin. They say the CuSi filler melds a bit before the metal, so much less warping and chance of burning holes in thin sheet metal. A bit weaker though than actual welding, but I guess full soldering is better that spot welds every 100 mm. Any experience?
