7/3/17 - Grinding rust around hatch area

Guys, I advise you to lift up your trunk hatch area weather stripping and inspect if you have rust underneath. I found a few spots around, took care of it. Grinding it down to the metal. As you can see, all the rust was spread around and trapped under the weatherstrip.

damn, nice catching some rust before it becomes worse!

I recommend checking underneath the car behind the driver and passenger seat where there is a rubber strip to channel air under the car. That seems to be a trouble spot for cars that have had any road salt exposure.

I would suggest sanding away what is visible, then coating it with a rust encapsulator, follow manufacturers instructions and then topcoat with the undercoating of your choice. I wish all cars came with a heavy duty line-X coating from the factory!

keep up the good work man!

Isn't the Yonaka exhaust a copy of the Apexi WS2? It's just pipe and it sounds good!

Hey im trying to figure something out for my rattle too... did that rubber work? Looks like its a lil thick? Let me know how it goes. I remember on my last rsx when i was getting my windshield replaced i asked to step in and lay some type of cloth all across the dash and it worked perfect... not one rattle after that. But then again that was with the windshield off... let me know your progress wish you luck!

I had just did it today...So, i have not had a chance to test it, but we are expecting chills in the morning soon so, i'll see how it reacts with that.

Looks good.

What I hate about getting new bolts (or refreshed) when you put them back on, they get little knicks from the socket.
