Yep it's been addressed quite a bit. You will need to pop the windshield out and remove the front fenders for a proper repair. The rust is most likely three times the size you see in the photos. I would venture a guess from the photos that the rust has probably rust ta hole in the panel and water is entering the passenger compartment and the trunk area.

You will need to weld in a repair panel similar to this. You could make your own of sheet metal. Obviously the panel will be trimmed to fit the repair.



Be prepared if the rust is there it is lurking in other areas of your car as well.

Yes, but it looks like it is temporarily unavailable. Look on the for sale section you may get lucky and find a car that is being parted out. There is another source for sheet metal but at the moment the suppiers name escapes me. Sorry.

Start poking around. There is more, guaranteed. Mine didn't look that bad.
