WTF is up with the damn pass rear wheel well on these damn cars?

Catch that STAT. Mine has been repaired at least 4 times in it's lifetime, and it's really bad this time. To the point where i'd just rather replace the whole damn fender.

Rust is a pain in the ass, sand it down to bare metal, prep it, coat it with POR15 and paint over it if you want to slow it down. If you just sand to metal and repaint it will come back in a year. Or you cut out the rust and weld new metal in.

This rust you speak of, I take it that it is bad? :laugh:

I'm kidding. I grew up in Iowa, so I remember what it was like. Good luck with it, but if you ever decide it is too far gone :evfinger: I would LOVE that trunk lid and spoiler. :lolhittin

Well I had some what appeared as surface rust on my car, just small spots. Sanded it down to bare metal, then sanded some more just to make sure. Primer, base paint, and clear. A year later the rust popped back up.

I would highly suggest POR15, I wish I did it a year back. http://www.por15.com/prodinfo.asp?grp=SSK&dept=11 Get it in clear. It will significantly slow the rust down. Then you can paint over it with body color.
