rust help

There is rust where the wing connects to the trunk, where the bolts are. Now there is water leaking in the trunk from there. If I sand off the rust and use bondo, the wing wont fit back onto the trunk. What can i do to keep the rust from spreading and to slow it? and maybe seal the trunk again? damn rust

Re: rust help

id say get a new trunk lid, that would probally be easiest. bondo is only a band aide for rust, and it will come back. The only other thing you could do is weld in new metal, but id say your best bet is a new trunk lid.

id agree with you if it was rot, but if it is surface rust. it is easily fixed by sanding it to bare metal than refinishing the panel

Re: rust help

thanks guys. Im thinking about just sealing it up and letting it rot till i get money for a new lid, hopefully CF so i don't have to ever worry about it again.
Ive started to hit some of the rust spots on my car, and this is the main problem.
