Sorted my rusty floor..
The weekend before last, me and my brother were busy.
My car had quite a bit of rust in the floor under the rear footwells.
It appears that under the carpet and soundproofing foam that Alfa decided to stick some tar like sound deadening on the floor. The tar tends to stay quite flat where as the floor is corrugated, and this allows moisture to be trapped in the gaps between. You can see the tar stuff on the firt pic, just below the hole. I only took a couple of pictures, one of my brother getting ready to weld, and one of the holes after I had cut most of the rust out with the tinsnips.
Both sides were pretty much the same.
The rest of the floor looks ok, except for some surface rust on the inner sills.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
