:chin: Maybe that explains why my rust won't just go away! It's been preserved.

Multiple Mustangs!
Looks like a parts car with that much rust. That trunk opening is horrible.

Hey we use to preserve the rust with duck tape then bondo. They actually made a tape to tape over the rust holes to apply the bondo to. Looks great for a few months then the small pox shows up.

Long time Pontiac guy, jumped ship, now driving a '71 Grabber Green Mach 1 with "J" code 429 Cobra Jet, close-ratio 4 speed, 3.50 Traction-Lok rear.
Yes that is the key statement: "most of the original rust has been carefully preserved with filler". Would the original rust be the rust from the factory? And at least it was carefully preserved. I would hate to see a rush job done with this.
