I will say it again about flanges and rust, the entire car, EVERY SINGLE WELD on EVERY SINGLE CAR MADE in the past 80 year or so is a flange, or pinch weld, EVERY SINGLE panel is held on with a flange or pinch weld on EVERY SINGLE CAR, what in the living hell is one more going to do?

You are putting a quarter on a 55 Chevy, the ENTIRE CAR is held together with flange and pinch welds, the quarters, the roof, the floor, the rockers, the ENTIRE car is held together with flange or pinch welds, how is one more going to make a difference?

Please excuse my "rant" but this subject cracks me up.
