~ there is a spot... along the outside of the rear wheel well on the passenger side of my car... a six inch long "spot" of pure rust. As in... "falls apart when you touch it" rust. There's like a frame to the wheel well so ... the frame remains, and that which used to be car but is now ... rust... simply flakes away.
What do I do? I mean, besides sell the car and get a new one. That's not an option right now. So... what does one do?
