Need helping deciding

Recommended Posts

Only had my Mustang for 2 months when I bought it I didn't throughly look it over. 

 

Now that I have I believe my quarters are rusting from the inside out as there are tiny paint bubbles on both sides

 The second issue is there is shock tower rust rot on both sides I couldn't see cause the car is lowered and the engine bay had leaves and shit in it 

 

My buddy told me to sell it and find another 

 

Car looks pretty good not sure if I can slow down the rust rot etc 

 

Here is a pic of the rot

I think it's worth a shot to take it to a body shop and see what they think.

its repairable but to do it right you would need to remove the motor and cut/weld in new pieces and then paint.  I say pieces because this will not be the only spot and then you can count on going a couple in inches past where you see the rust to get to good metal.  You can also just scrape it and do some POR15 style paint

Yeh I can't afford to pull the motor etc and the quarters panels there are some rust bubbles up by the sail panel so my body guy said it's spread etc

Right now I have coated it with automotive rust bullet I guess it's similar to por 15

Sounds like you should just sell it if you cant afford to make the repairs correctly. I would be upfront about the issues when selling.

tough call.  Your going to take a bath on selling it  if your honest but I know I would have a hard time not telling the next owner.  Maybe make it one of those things you mention after the title is signed?

I'd find a roller and swap everything into it, or sell the car.  Thats going to be a lot of money to have a body shop tackle it, and doesnt sound like you have the time or money to do any of the work.  Cut your losses and part with the car, or drive it into the ground and I wouldn't stick any money into it.
