I have it on both quater panels. I cut it out recently to prevent it from getting worse. However, I'm not left with two small holes in my qp.

Yes I do have rust on my rear quarters. I drives me nuts. I should expect it to though, being a Vermont car. I hate salt. I'm wondering where to find replacement panels I can weld in. Anyone know?

Ive got rust on the passenger side in that spot but i also have body damage. My drivers side is starting to rust also. Gonna get it fixed and the car repainted. I'm half tempted to come up with a fender liner for my car.

I can't vote because I did have rust on the passenger's side rear quarter but got it taken care of. It was pretty bad. It rusted almost all the way through. Looks awesome now though.
