Was messing around and noticed a kinda funny looking spot in the paint near the shock tower. Well I decided to peel the paint off alittle and find out whats underneith it.. It turns out that the PO had just slapped bondo over the rust holes not even trying to cut out the old rust. After calming down I found 3 more spots in diffrent places. These are holes you could fit a baseball thru. What a rip off, the guy told me the car had no rust before I drove 1,400 miles to get it. I have already replaced the floors, battery tray apron, gona have to replace both rear fenders, both trunk extensions, and outer wheel wells. When I got their I pointed out most of the rust and he said he has never noticed it. When I told him he was gona have to come down on the price he agreed but wasn't happy. The guy said he sells mustangs all the time so dont buy a mustang from a guy in Reo Rancho New Mexico. If I would have know the extent of the damages I would not have bought the car.

Kind of reminds me of a '65 POS I had. The rear quarter panels just behind both rear wheels were all bondo! No bother welding a patch panel over the rotted out lower corner due to road salt, just filled in with 2 inch thick bondo.

One of the red flag phrases is "Not one spot of rust".

The red flag phrase that gets me every time, especially at car shows, is when the owner of the car says "not one drop of body fill anywhere", I want to know where they get those perfect seamless panels and dentfree.The way I look at it, a minimum of a quart of body fill is to be expected on any car that has been restored, between dents, filling in seems and smoothing panels.Heck, I dont think I have fixed a mustang yet where I haven't had to use almost a quart to get the tailight panel looking decent(notice I said not perfect).

Mine isn't that bad, but notice the hole in my fender to cowl brace on the right. It was also repaired with bondo. The repo bracket on the left set me back A WHOLE $14.00. PO says, "Hey why spend $14.00 when I've got a whole can of bondo sitting on the shelf right here?".

Of course you notice, I haven't gotten the thing installed yet, so maybe I should reserve my sarcasim for AFTER I've actually fixed it. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
