Dubious about "new condition" claims too after seeing a spoiler sat in a garage being primed up with rattle cans

Worth saving them though, Saw car SOS last night and less than 30 Mk1 astra GTE's on the road now, rarest car they have ever done.

underneath is good but will give it a good clean and weld if required and then seam sealed and under sealed. as for the spoiler it's going to body shop to have painted i just quickly tidied it up to save labour costs, full car will be going for a respray as well.
