Default Roof rust UPDATE

I had rust along the roof line for several years now.

These two are pictures the owner took of his work in progress. He made B/W copies for me...Not the best, but you can see the damage

He did a great job. Smooth as brand new. I can't even tell where he blended the old and new paint. I give him a passing grade, but I see where the glass guy scratched my hood while removing and installing. Most of it buffed out though.

I am $900.30 lighter

Like everyone else said, good thing you caught that when you did. My parents had a Olds 98 when I was younger and our roof looked the same, then one day while driving, my mom hit a bump and BLAM!!!!! CRASH!!!!!! The windshield fell out

Ours was much worse than yours.

I agree. I was in pickle with what to do. I could not do the car any good by doing it myself. I couldn't let it go any longer because of the obvious results, it was starting to get the headliner wet, and I wouldn't want to sell it that way either. I wouldn't have gotten much money for it either. It was the only way to fix it. Sucks it cost so much, but it'* only money right?
