OldTech Sometimes skill is just not enough. You have to have some artistic sense for the design and flow of lines too.

Rodnit Don't get me wrong, that Caddytruck is butt ugly. But at the same time, there must have been some pretty good fab work to merge the two.....

Too Many Projects I have a '67 Camaro that came from that area and it has most of the same rust issues as a MN car. The salt is in the air and condenses overnight, then it runs down into the cowl and window channels. The back window channel on mine rusted thru many years ago and then took out the entire trunk floor. A stucco sider must have owned it and rebuilt the floor with the mesh to hold stucco and and then coated it. The rear wheel arches and front fender dog legs are badly rusted as well.

deadbodyman You raised some good points there.
On mine the sealer is about as thick and round as my finger, not a sign of rust anywhere.
something else to consider, every once in a while someone brings a car in with a little rust in the wheel arch and I instantly know that car was from somewhere else, like NY and just ended up here. Like I say though that's a pretty good design so the problem is unique to that van. isn't the SF Bay salt water? I saw something on TV where they never stop painting that bridge because it'll rust and its so big when they get to the other end its time to start over again.
it had to have been loose AND over loaded to bust through all that sealer. and a little salt water air in there and POOF.
Normally the rack just sits on the sealer by its own weight, the points just hold it in place until the outer brackets are installed. If you wanted too you could install it without the points even touching the sealer by just lifting it up slightly as you tighten the outer clamp bracket so it was definetly moving or installed improperly or too loose.
You should check to see if where the rack is mounted is in line with the inner pillars for maximum support
