in the process of restoring my 86 Reliant, both front floors were gone on the sides, and the passenger side had rust up in the higher wheel well.

what my dad and i did, we welded it from the outside so it looks factory. then we used roofing tar to seal it up, and it looks great. the judges cant even tell its been patched ( i show my K with a mirror under the chassis)


the 1988 Aries from florida we recently patched a very small hole not rusted through


the low mileage 85 Aries, Rear rockers and left rear quarter panel. floors are 100 percent solid

My new 85 aries wagon has some. I know it needs a new driver's side door. I haven't really climbed under it to see really how much cancer it has, but if I do, well, i bet it's not pretty. I only paid $250 for it, so if anything, it will be a good parts car.

I'm a little late with my reply so whether or not you will see it, I don't know. My car is now to the point where I can't drive it because it needs CV joints, etc. I tried to attach photos for you, but the sight wouldn't let me.
Thanks.

Oil pan isn't too serious. Should be fixable.
