Rust on Floor


Have completely removed interior, carpets and insulation to find source of a leak, i have found a fair bit of surface rust in the N/S rear footwell, it looks as though water has sat here for years!
I have removed most of it with wire brush and drill and treated it but cannot get under the raised front seat mounting points, i can see surface corrosion in there and water has sat there as it is a low point.

Has anyone any suggestions as it is welded to the floor/Chassis it just seems a shame that i have got this far and treated most of it only to have to put back together knowing the surface rust is still there

Please help

Re: Rust on Floor

OK Tatters, I guess this new problem of yours in the PM relates to this thread, could you post some pics of where the bang was and where you saw smoke from?
