In this photo, you can see the damage caused by the accident in 1972, the frame was bent upwards ahead of the rusted area. The bending of the frame kept sand and water trapped in the rusted area. The other side was fine. The car in general has little or no rust on it. I did find a small group of 1/4" or so holes in each front floor area. These were in the bottom of stiffing groves where water inside the car was trapped under the carpet and worked it's way through. I have fixed those with POR-15 (tm) and fiberglass cloth. Being a convertible, it gets wet inside quite often.
