3636rust, fenders and body...
- May 26, 2005Hey all
This weekend looks like my mechanic and I are going to gut my 535i
parts car for components for my pathetic 528e. Out of it I'l be able
to recover many MANY things including seats, motor, tranny, limited
slip, doors and glass, computers, etc etc etc... Now I also wanted to
grab the front and rear fenders/quarterpanels but my mechanic has told
me that due to the way these machines are constructed, its likely
theres water <i>inside</i> the fenders and to do so is guaranteed to
ensure that the rest of my car will rust out as well.
So I guess my question to you is, um, first off I wasn't aware that
fenders had pockets that you couldn't get at where water could pool
and secretly rust so my first question is, is he on crack? Second
question is, if he's right, is there a way to treat it so it will stop
