How rotten is my 147/156/GT?

It may be shiny, run well and have a lovely interior, but...

those corroded floor pans?

I guess the only way to tell is to rip up the carpet

(I'm too afraid to do it)

You don't need to rip the carpet up, just look under the car... the underseal is so thin & patchy it doesn't hide much, but if you do happen to have a thick section, it is probably rusty above it...!

Areas close to section joints were the worse on mine. Probably all down to poor prep (again!).
