How bad is this rust? v2.OeF

.

I wish I could say, "I just found this car in a field, out in the middle of no-where" ...

but that would be like saying, "I just found out: everything I do to 510's is a bad idea" ...... :lol:

Image








and not fixing this floor-pan for the last 11 years was a bad idea:

Six months ago,, I thought 510's were the coolest cars ever built .... Their lightwieght construction, fuel efficency, and ability to take curvy roads with a smile... will never be matched by a modern day car manufacturer

..... but lying deep beneath the seams,,, is evil ...... an ion more powerfull than steel ..... Iron oxide will slowly destroy all 510's

it's hiding underneath your bondo, crawlin' through your rocker panels .... ..

Stop scaring the children, Indy! Halloween is months away.
Because when you spend a silly amount of money on a silly, trivial thing that will help you not one jot, you are demonstrating that you have a soul and a heart and that you are the sort of person who has no time for Which? magazine. – Jeremy Clarkson

I don't even know where to start, .. .. it looks like the entire rocker panel is rotten from the inside .... and there isn't much good metal to weld to

.... ... this is never going to be a show car,,,, , and it could be a daily driver tommorow with a plywood floor ..... :lol:
