It would also be worth fifting the carpet in the footwells.

Underneath the carpet is a type of bitumen sheet, that doesn't follow the floors corrugations very well. Moisture gets in (Through the cutouts in the floorpan) then stays in the gaps between this and the floor. On my 156 this made the rust come from the inside outwards..

I would remove the bitumen then seal the cutouts up.

10L went under my Cup! And another 2 inside the sills/floor pan.

Took the seats out then unjected it under seat box sections etc!

Prevention is cheaper!
