Got rust?

Curious how many other people have this issue hidden between the coating of the outer side of the rear fenders and the carpeting. This is where the seatbelt for the back seat of my 2-door was anchored. Feeling safe yet? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Ouch. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
At least you have easy access to check the inner sidewall after wheeling.

I remember when I lived in MI I had a 65 Corvair. Most the front clip was sculpted out of bondo due to it just rusting away (Previous owner's handywork)......

I keep hearing rumors that they are kicking around the idea of using salt up in the mountains around here. I hope it never happens. I'll take chips in my paint and windshield from the gravel the put down for traction any day over car cancer.
I do tend to drive older Asian cars these days afterall, they don't tend to hold up to salt very well......
