Think thats bad, when i was in the bone yard the other day, i took a walk
down GM row. During my look in back seats for unfound goodies, i found
some late 80'early 90's gm front drive cars with the back seats out. i saw
daylight through the area just between the rear seat and back door area.
Many i saw were completely rotting out. One enterprising individual had the rear
suspension arm welded to a pipe which was then welded to what was left
of the unibody. The rear suspension arm literately collapsed into the back
seat area. That repair may have bought him a little time, but the grim reaper
finally took its prize at the bone yard.
i have noticed a lot of gen3's in the bone yard here with substantial
rusting in the side unibody rail area. I was looking for brake lines
a few weeks back and saw more rot on a lot of cars that i thought
was possible. It seems the side undercar plastic molding traps water and
crud under it until it literally tries to rot itself off the car.
I have struts in the near future of my gen3 and am hoping i don't have
what the pictures here have shown.
