Hi!

Does this happen to your 'dry climate' cars in the US? :D :eek: :surrender: :crybaby2:

Most of what appears to be bodywork, is actually rust flakes held together with underseal & floor insulation :twak: :D

I have not seen any in my area with rust that severe. The rustiest w123 I have personally seen was a cactus green euro 240D that had rust in the exterior part of the rocker panel and inside the wheel wells but not in the inside part of the car. I found out it was really rusty because it came from Pennsylvania. I was amazed he was even able to drive it down here without it falling apart and it even passed inspection with questionable rust near the top of the shock tower and other suspension parts.

Would you believe me if I told you it still has a year TÜV left? Hardcore! Luckily it's not my project, but 'only' a parts donor I'm braking for spares. Though I could realy do with a T-Model as my current daily has a certain lack of loading capacity :D
