About the same vintage as yours. >=20 Had a Skoda Favorit like that. Looked like a little weld rust. So I got the dremel on it with a=20 grinding stone. Plan was to grind the rust off and trat the left over,=20 stone chip it and repaint. Went right through. Got a local body man to lap plate it (most of the surrounding metal was=20 totally clean when he stripped the paint back). I did as above to make sure it didn't come back, and again on the inside=20 of the strut tower. Car wasn't worth putting lots of time and money into (only cost me =A380+= =20 a windscreen). It was just a runabout that was fun to play with, and=20 wrench myself.Mechanically very simple, structurally very strong. --=20 "Sorry Sir, the meatballs are Orf" The poster formerly known as Skodapilot.
