Up until today I thought my car was virtually rust free. Today I pulled up the floor mats from under the old seats in anticipation of installing my new seats soon (more on this later). Under the mat on the passenger side I found a significant rust hole
The driver’s side has a much smaller hole in the same location.
I’m worried that the seat rail puts considerable stress on that area and could fail, especially on the passenger side. I think I should fix this before putting the new carpet in. Stay tuned.
