I think the rust you are seeing there is very fine, might even have come from the spare tire.

There are a couple of other little rust spots and one bad rocker but the seller gave me two new rockers with the car and I am trying to find a body shop in SE PA that will do the work. I have customers in the body shop biz but they looked at it today and won't touch it. They only do new cars, yada yada.

Thanks! The base of my Euro plate is from my sons long gone 1996 Mitsubishi Technica. It was laying around his trunk and I presented it to the 02 and it got hired to do the job.

Guitars and Tennis, my other two hobbies. That specific guitar in the picture is one that was custom made for a local known pro guitarist. A friend of mine had seen it at some guys house who was selling it. I went with some cash in pocket and took it away from him. Right now, one of my best axes.

Regards,
