Re: Sprint windscreen surround rust - how serious?
That area adds to the rigidity of the car so you don't want it to be too rusty.
It's not an MOT failure unless there's holes in there, which may convince the tester that the windscreen isn't very secure.
Some bubbling means the windscreen should be taken out.. rust solved/filled etc. and then paint and refit. It's pretty simple... best to have it done before it gets to the cut/weld in new metal stage, where it suddenly gets a heap more expensive.
