Citroen AX – The Rust – in the most surprising places!

Having stripped the interior I could have a good look at the extent of the rust.

1. Drivers side inner sill. Where the floorpan meets the sill.

2. This patch is on the inside beside the gear lever! ┬áIt is quite bad – how?????

3. This is looking into the rear of the sill on the drivers side. Not too bad, it looks worse on the outside.

12. Another two “funny” spots, above the passenger side front wishbone mountings. The mountings themselves are rust free – not to be confused with free rust.

More pics of the underside later. So far it all looks striaght forward, the insides of the sills are not as bad as first feared.
