Re: rust :(

if your body shop is any good, or if you are any good, you should be able to weld in a iece of metal and make it look fine.. finding a rear quarter panel without rust will be nearly impossible...best place would be a junkyard.

...Really? Dude, it's called Honda rust for a reason. Every Honda starts to rust there eventually. Many Prelude trunks leak due to a bad seal in the trunk. Replace the weather stripping and it should fix it. Also, make sure your trunk is bolted tightly to the hinges.

Re: rust :(

Well where is it leaking from, left side, right side, center...Also, how high does the leak seem to be, like dripping from the top, pooling in the bottom?
