OK I've heard this is a huge problem. Especially the two problem spots. Above both rear wheels and right under the rear windshield. I want to get it fixed. I was told it would help if I take that rubber off that is located directly above the wheel and goes directly on the sheet metal on the inside lip. What I would like to know is. Would this be a good idea and if so should I sand it and repaint it since it's under the wheel well and no one will be able to see the paint job on it.

Thanks in advance.

Peace

go live in AZ, about 350 days out of the year there's 0% humidity. i had no problems with rust when the car was there. Of course the sun does bake the shit out of your paint. On my trunk lid, the paint looks chalky (i have a black car). It was starting to get like that on the rear quarter panels (the small fraction that faces up).

Sounds like carbon build up. There are waxes that are good with dealing with that...

i had the problem with the rust under the windshield a few years back... pretty simple fix... with a razor, i took all the rubber/plastic around the strip... all the rust was taken off with sandpaper... i covered most of the rear end of the car with newspaper, and spraypainted the strip a flat black... its been over three years, and it still looks good... while i was at it, i took the liberty of repainting the windshield wipers...

Yeah I pretty much know what to do on the strip behind the windshield. My big problem spot is just above my rear wheels. Can anyone help out with that. Thanks for your help so far.


Peace
