ford and their stinking rear wheel wells... i swear.

i dont really know what your looking at as far as cost goes but just make sure you shop around if your not doing it yourself. maybe someone else has had that done and can tell you what to expect. maybe you could hit it really hard with a shopping cart and call your insurance co. kidding, dont do that.

well if your a handy kinda guy and wanna have some fun you can, grind it out with an attachment for a drill(take the tire off first) and then apply some primer, then repaint it.

if you would rather have someone else do it prolly round 100-150(mainly labor) my bro had his trunk on an 00' maxima sanded and repainted for like 100 and thats alot more paint.

hope this helped

ps. if there is a rust hole let someone else do it.

IIRC I remember reading somewhere that all ford vehicles have a 10 year body warranty that covers the wheel well I think...

At any rate, I'd say upwords to $1K for a good blend job with the paint.

Ford does have a warranty. First 60 months/Unlimited miles. Not sure if it's from original purchase date by the first owner or from the date when it was made.

1,000 bucks? no way that would be a total rip off.

if i had to pay 1000 for some rust there had better be a warrenty for about 10 years. and i dont think ford has ever offered a rust warrenty. seeing as they rust in about 5 years
