    TR-6 rust on the rear fender, upper rear corner-

    Hi....

    I looked at a TR6 today and it had some weird rust for a california car ,

    the top rear edge of the rear fenders were rotted thru, looked like this was a dirt trap and that the dirt had helped it rot thru

    is this common ?

    Very common in the harsher climates(like here [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]) I saw one recently where the whole rear corner was completely gone!
