    Default what all car owners dread....

    guys, have been wondering recently - and i know its very hard to admit to one another but are any of our veccy's starting the rusting process??
    especially after all the salt on our roads after the rough winter we have had??
    i have noticed on the inside of my drivers door, were the panels have been spot welded a wee 'flame' red rust spot appearing around 3 spot welds

    anyone got any rust anywhere on their motor??
    (photos would be good to show us too)

    The arches on the back of mine started to flake but i've had them re-sprayed and so far so good.

    Are you sure it's rusting and that there isn't just water behind the paint, the bodies are galvanised and shouldn't rust. As said all that was happening to mine is that the paint was flaking, the metal behind was still bright silver
