Those were the only rust spots on the car and those have been taken care of professionally. Evrything is Sealed off using a good quality seam sealer The car is being taken apart and checked for spots to repair. Car was in good shape but I wanted to make sure there was no problems for years to come and so I Ended up painting almost the whole car. Car is further taken apart and sanded down. All the seems under the hood were refinished. Engine bay was degreased and sanded down. New Rock Guard was applied on the bottom under the front bumper. Glass was removed at this point as it had chips and its easier to paint without one. Hood and trunk was painted seperate to give great acces to trunk seal and engine compartment. Notice the original Rocker panels I never saw such a clean car. No rust even on the jack points.
