here was my quick fix that is holding up with no problems:



sanded to bare metal, then used 2 coats of eastwood's rust encapsulator

Remove the rear bumper and rear wheels and take a look at the damage. I did that this last weekend with my 97 OBS.
I used a wire wheel on a drill to clean it up and the went to town with some POR-15



Nice, another por-15 user! people gotta discover this stuff it's the shyt. I did the Qp's on all 3 subaru's I have owned as well as flor pans and the full interior of my Rs

Just found this cancer today while attempting to "repair" some scabs of rust in the two usual places on both rear quarters of my 2001 RS.....every spot of rust was eaten thru the metal! 4 goddamn holes in my quarters!!

pass quarter rust enough to cause bumper clip to hang, driver starting to bubble. rockers on both sides have holes (small but still) and a lil rust forming along the outter door jamb of both rear doors.

want to grab a wire wheel and drill, get that shit off and "rust killer" it, but my only problem is finding a can of touch up paint to hide the repair. no stores around me carry either of my colors (fuckin 2-tone paint)

No rust here.

'99 RS with 100k New England miles. Only reason there isn't rust is that I got rear-ended 4 years ago and the bodywork got sorted out then.

I only have a small quarter-sized rust spot on my sunroof. The person who had the car before me repainted it and painted over the rust spot. It hasn't spread since I've had it but I know it will eventually. And I have alot of rock chips on my hood where the metal is exposed but there is no rust there yet. :/ I only have that one spot on my sunroof and that is it. And I live in Colorado so we get a lot of snow here and the roads are always salted.
