Thanks for sharing stoatmaster.
Thats incredible how much it began to rust on the underside of the quarter just by a small water leak.
Epic work there though. You completely reworking all that yourself?

Thankfully not! It's in the capable hands of the body shop, but I stripped the car down before hand.

The water appears to have collected in a few places, in the seam between the inner and outer quarters, running back to the boot, and running forward down the arch into the sill.

It's only a few drops, but consider it's been doing that since I had the car. (Going on 9 years) The drivers side is in fine condition in comparison.


Inner / Outer seam where the water would have collected.


Where the water has run down the inner arch....


And finally the sill! (This looks worse than it is)

Fortunately I have all the parts, so the rear quarter of the car is going to get some quite substantial modifications!

ouch.

when my car was undersealed he lathered this area in waxoyl for this exact reason. they are not rust resistant inside at all.

mine is due back anytime from new boot floor which is thankfully easier than what you have had done.. the panel was c£300 iirc

Thats actually not bad for 9 years.
I think s2000 rust just as bad as the older EG civics.

What body shop are you using by the way?

I've only had it nine years, she's actually a '99. Bit pissed off that she was effectively rust free until someone messed with that screw! (Doesn't get driven in rain or winter)

Body shop is a place in Cwmbran, South Wales. Decided as it's her 20th birthday it was time to sort the rust and get a full paint job at the same time.
