Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Thanks for the tip! This is interesting, though, other than as a restore to show condition car, small issues with the doglegs can be fixed with POR15 fiberglass mat and a thin smoothing layer of the POR filler (then sand/finish paint)... I would think if the dog legs were so far gone that they need new metal welded in that other areas would have serious rust problems also? It's a very 3d area, and where I have often had holes is on the triangle facing the wheel itself. You really have to remove all the trim, wheel, fender liner etc to fix this reliably. Even so, it is a problematic area. One thing I find is that the shape in behind there collects dirt (which in these parts means dirt + road salt) and that just sits there corroding it from the inside. The shape needs to be filled with something so dirt won't collect anymore. I've been spraying the non visible surfaces with rubberized undercoating after all the other paint steps, as it fills and protects those surfaces. Still, it never lasts forever in our climate, even with oil spray!

Semi-related question... anyone know if the lower half of the rear fender bodywork of a 2005 sedan matches a 2005 wagon? Found a black sedan at the pick-n-pull and would consider cutting out the whole fender region as a patch if it is in decent shape rust-wise... I think that would work... Our wagon had many years without oil spray before we bought it and one fender is getting out of control ugly. There is only so much patching one can do before it is time to break out a welder!
