Bonneville92V688 is on a distinguished road
Default A few pics of my minimal rust.

I am surprised that this car only has a little rust. A typical Northern Ohio car (over 10 years old) is terrible for rust in my area. I guess I'm lucky.


Here ya go



Passenger Rear wheelwell



Along bottom lip of trunk



Back door - drivers' side



Near the fuel filter - Dont know why it always rusts here on cars

I had some of the same spots. I bought a sanding block, some rust dissolver, and primer/paint. A little time and it was covered.

I've got more than that.

Eventually (with $$$), I might just take an angle grinder, fibreglass, and some POR-15 to some of my visible, ugly rust bubbles. It'* beyond the point of no return, at least I can make it presentable from 20 feet.

I have no rust behind my door seals, checked yesterday. This is a very clean car for being a northern Ohio car (some of you know what I mean). We use alot of salt, and I mean alot, and it kills cars. My mom and dad had a 1978 Impala and the frame cracked and we drove it like that, Well my dad came out one morning to find the frame completely snapped.

These cars rust out like that? My 96 Aurora has not one spot of rust on it and I have checked everywhere. Anyway what caused the Bonnevilles to rust like that?
