1987 Honda Accord restoration. Well, I decided to show you guys my latest project I decided to take care of the rust problem on my 1987 Hatchback S. It's been winter driven from 1987 to 2007, 20 years of northeast road salt! The good thing is that it's been rustproofed every year, this is probably what saved this vehicule. I decided to start with the floor. Once it's nice and pretty again, the rest is easier to work on since it's outside the car thus making less of a mess. I was able to remove the car quite easily in the front but the back is a little more painful. I might try dry ice in the future. Here's what it looked like when I removed the front left carpet. A close-up look shows you that it started to rust around the rubber plug The rear is definitely better, only showing minimal rust. With the tar out of the way, you can really see the damage extent. It rusted around the plugs and spread a little further. Close-up view on the biggest hole. Here's the right side. There was a water lea there but I think it only started recently because the damage would have been alot worse. Once again, it started to rust around the rubber plugs Cleaned!
