POST SOME PICS--LETS SEE HOW BAD THE RUST IS-----IF IT HAS EATEN THROUGH---YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO PATCH IT UP------IF IT IS TOO FAR GONE----YOU MIGHT NEED ANOTHER QUARTER----RUST NEVER STOPS IF YOU JUST LEAVE IT THERE----YOU HAVE TO TREAT IT AND STOP IT OR JUST CUT IT OUT..........LATES

SO YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT RUST ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE TOP OF THE QUARTER UNDER THE VINYL TOP---WHERE THE MOLDING GOES---------IF THAT IS RIGHT ---THEN THAT IS COMPLETELY "COMMON"-----FACTORY DIFFECT------LOTS OF CADDY'S GET RUST THERE---AS A MATTER OF FACT ALOT OF CARS W/ VINYL TOPS GET RUST THERE----THAT IS WHY I HATE VINYL TOPS----------- :biggrin:

1 last thing... i took the weather strippin off the trunk today and at the bottom ..the edge where the weather strippin attatches 2 is rusted 2..but its only rust on the sharp egde that goes up... but it looks like teeth cause of the rust chipped away.. /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ like that...so wha i thought i could do is put a peice of tape on the back side like makin a wall and fiber glassin/bonding a new wall from this side... and then fileing it down right... or do i need to weld metal ? :(

thanks alot bro

is the rust in the vinyl top?

or is it in the left side near the truck area? there are many rust neutralizers that you can buy or just use backing soda/water/and a little lemon juice.

another tip for the homies who have ranflas with vinyl tops, you can use por-15 under it, then redo your top over it:cheesy: .

the only way ucan get rid of rust for good is to sandblast it, covering it with bondo and fibreglass with tape on the back is the cheapest fucking most brutal hack thing i have ever heard. if u do that it will be back within 6 months gaurenteed. trust me i am a body man up in canada so i know how to deal with rust. first u blast the spot, it there is and holes cut that peice out and weld in a patch if it is just a tiny hole like u say, then from there just grind the welds, throw some putty over it, block her out, primer, block with 320 and spray it, then undercoat the inside like a mother fucker where u welded because the sealer burns off the inside f the panle where u welded so it has to be resealed. and that is how we do it up in canada :cool:
