How does the water get into R107 rocker panels ??? <br>
A know fault on the R107 is rust in the rocker panels. <br>
<br>
I have found a 1988 Model 300SL that seems to be in good condition for corrosion. I have been looking for some time. Most are already rusted out. <br>
<br>
If I buy it I want to make sure that it does not go downhill. <br>
<br>
Anyone know how water gets into the rocker panels as it seems to be a sealed area. <br>
<br>
Any good idea's as to how to protect them (Externally and/or Internally) <br>
<br>
I was thinking of cutting a small number of small holes (About 1/2 inch diameter), on the inside (Footwell), and spraying with a corrosion inhibiting compound. Plug them up after. <br>
Also Zibert all round on the outside. <br>
<br>
What other areas do I need to consider. <br>
