Well I've started the process of preparing for
my 2056 GT to 2.4L six "rallye tribute" auto.
Tearing into the interior I discovered some rust mites have been eating for a while.
Doesn't look too extensive but will be probing some more. The exterior left long was
patched a long time ago, albeit incorrectly. This was done by shop
that wasn't fully up to speed on these cars and I was still a novice, well
still am. I'll be doing some exploratory surgery on this left side inside and out. So I'll get this addressed before any engine install takes place. Would like to
have it buttoned up for Hershey 2017. Wish me luck.

Doesn't look bad. Grab a multi tool and get rid of the floor tar once and for all.

I was going to suggest , contact cement heavy duty aluminum foil in place and new carpets. Good as new. Wasn't sure how that would be received. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

License plate ( aluminum kind , easy to bend, more 'professional') and bondo.
1/2 hour max. Finish with duct tape to prevent further rust.

It's a VW. The proper method is to steal some street signs and fiberglass them in. Construction adhesive would also work.

Yeah one pop rivet over a 4 inch hole in the frame is all it took to hold my car together.

Leave it to an engineer to overcomplicate this repair!

The problem your going to run into is the degradation of the inner stiffening layer too. Which is the layer where the seat belt anchor starts it spot welds. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Jeff did an extensive rebuild/patch in that area in his thread.

Hopefully yours won't be that extensive. Was the jack point replaced on the prior repair ?

Hey Cary,
The jack point was completely cut out. They just welded up "patch".
However unbeknownst to me they never joined the top of the patch to where it meets
the door sill area. I will cutting out that whole area to see what's what.
Yeah it will be a nice challenge with that seat belt anchor area. We'll get it done.
Also need to address front of long next to front left wheel well/fender.
Purchasing cut off wheels and a new grinder/ die grinder. I'll add to this thread as I make progress
Thanks guys.

Ok, tar all scraped out. Door braces in place.
Time this week to start cutting and removing the
offending rust areas on the longs.
