Hi there guys!
First proper topic aside from introduction here. New to all this and love the community!
'Obi Wan' reference due to the fact I'm new and yet to be a Jedi in this art!
Need some advice R:E dealing with rot on the window sill/rear quarter of Audrey. My cheeky yet bedraggled 83 Mayfair.
I've scoured the forums for advice, and ideas for treating the rust. My skills are however limited so wanted to ask your advice.
The link to the offending articles:
Before I carry on I haven't the money or skillset to replace the rear quarters in their entirety. *(just as a question how much of a pig of a job is it?!)
So below are my options:
1. Treat both sides of the quarter with KURUST multiple times, zinc prime, filler over, paint.
(though i'm sure its no miracle cure and it will be back to haunt me?)
2. Grind out all the rust to when I get to good metal, have a pretty big hole, Plate behind by
creating a custom shape to fit/take into account curves, prime, fill, paint.
3. Bite the bullet and replace rear quarter. I know its obviously the best idea (but as explained not really doable for me at moment)
4. Answers on the back of a post card!
Im a bodywork novice, and I want to do it so it doesn't just come straight back so as much as I know ive probably answered my own question to a point, id love your opinions.
Great forum and great people,
