Rusting from the inside out is quite common in older cars.
Thats the largest trunk lid ive ever seen

If it was a northern car, I might not be so surprised. But, FL car since new. Came out of the Atlanta assembly plant. The floors, quarters, doors, etc are really nice. The worst was/is the trunk lid, trunk floor, around the rear window, and the driver's side fender.

I finished the welding Tuesday and gave it a coat of dura glass + primer. Then stuck it on the car, doesn't line up very well. It is going to take some patience to get it where I want it.
