Re: Ur-Quattro Big Problem

Ashes to Ashes, dust to dust, your quattro is rotting and turning to rust.

Solution?  Move to California nd avoid the salt moster,  what that doesnt
work for you?  Sounds like you need some serious metal plating to fix this
problem.  A good body and fender shop or a race shop would know what to
do.  If it was my car, I would fix it then sell it!  What else is eaten
away.  If he decides to keep a thorough inspection of the rest of the car
is certianly in order.
