That was what I was considering doing with the 95 that Bandit now owns. But it would have been too much time and energy spent and I still wouldn't have a perfect car. And I wanted the 00+ body.

Which is why I went newer.

thats thought went throught my head with my '95, strip it, paint the cassis black and put all the panles on mine onto it, since its rust free and has a better motor... But i dont want to give up on this car, i have put tomuch money time love into it to give up now

That'* going to be one hell of a repair job, frankly you'll find more things underneath that'll need fixing as well. It'* easy to say you'll stick with the car, but this isn't going to be the end of serious problems. Driving it as is, is very dangerous, what happens if you need to avoid something quickly?

In reality all you would need to repaint on a car is the rear quarters and hood to match..

This is exactly why i steered clear of the first bonne I seriously test drove/looked at, and had inspected. It already had a hole going through some of the rear unibody/frame area.

POR-15 isn't a fix all either. Putting it on OE metal that'* been "exposed" like a car underbody will slow down the process, but it needs to go on corrosion free body pieces to really keep the rust away.

POR-15 however is designed to adhere to rusty surfaces (you can also use their other products to prep bare or painted metal). And if the rust isn't terminal, once coated correctly it will never rust again. The moisture is permanently sealed out. It may not "fix" rust, but it prevents further rust, it doesn't just slow it down. While it would be ideal, I bet most people who use POR-15 do not use it on a completely clean underbody. I sure would feel great if I was able to though!

It'* great don't get me wrong, but a few sentances made it seem like a miracle cure..

And for posterity'* sake, I still would *really* consider scrapping that unibody. Was this not diagnosed in the rebuild/repaint you did a few months ago?

Thats terrible. I feel bad for ya all the time you put in er. This always stirrs up a thought of mine. In a snowy climate you MUST get a car wash w/ undercarrage wash at least once a week during the winter season. When I gave my 93 Olds 88 to my dad in 2004 that car and its undercarrige was spottless. He could give a **** about cars, hence that car is now pretty much junkyard ready. My LSS is in identical condition as it was when I got it in 2004. I know it gets expensive but if you truelly want to keep a car for a long time once a week winter car washes are a must.
