Barchetta rust locations

Hi
I have found rust on the drivers side back wing along the seam of the wing and the the seal just behind the door.

I also have a few spots on each of the wheel arches.

Re: Barchetta rust locations

If you have recently had a re-spray can you not claim??? they must have flattened it back.

Hi
I have had the rust removed but has come back :-( The paint job was about 11 months ago now and the rust is just starting to show again. I think I need someone to cut out the rust and do a 100% repair. All money money money....

Re: Barchetta rust locations

Yes, rust is like cancer, unless you cut it out it will come back.

Good luck. Is your car not galvanised? Or was this a later change, mine is an Aluminium body galvanised.

Mine is a 2002 model..

Re: Barchetta rust locations

All versions of Barchetta should be galvanised. Has your car been in an accident?

No spots as yet [LE'99]


Aluminium body- are your sure?

As fas as I know all bodies were steel from Ilcas and [at least some] were sprayed at Bertone and assembled at Maggiora.

The thickness of the metalsheet was improved in later versions.

Hi
A bit of an update for you, I got hold of the owner that had my B before me, he told me that a women hit the B in a car park on the back drivers wing and thats why I have a bit of rust as it was not fixed as it should have been. No big deal, will get it done at some point soon.
