I know that feeling well.

My wife thought she'd help me the other day. We were headed out to breakfast in the Falcon, and I have some original old stickers and decals on the back side windows. The Lyons Dragstrip sticker was curling up on the edges, so she reached up and ripped the peeling half off!!!
To say I was speechless would be an understatement. She must have seen my mouth hanging open, and said, "What?" I told her that was probably a 40 year old sticker she just tore off, and she still didn't get it. I grabbed the sticker and put it in my shirt pocket. Glued it back on later when we got home.

Those trunk drops are a place they always rust out! I had to do repairs on my '63 Falcon in the same spot. But I drilled the inside and installed a drain tube at the low point to avoid having them ever accumulate moisture in the future.

Mine was very solid other than the pinholes in trunk drop, and small holes on floors in front where they angle up to meet firewall. Had two patches to install there to get floors solid.

Latest project is the roof on my '69 Burb. I've noticed the clear coat was failing, and lots of flaking going on up there. Since the lower paint looks pretty decent, I figured I'd strip the clear off, and make the Burb two tone with an off white roof.
Got up there to strip it and discovered more issues than paint! There are 4 spots that the paint has cracked in a circular shape! It appears the old Burb was an ambulance at one time in it's early life, and some knucklehead didn't properly delete the holes for emergency lights, and sirens!
I dug out the cracks today, and underneath was the beginning of rust creeping at the bad metal joint. The holes range from about 6"-7" down to 1.5", at 4 locations. After digging them out, I saw some previous owner had pop riveted sheetmetal underneath the hole, and then ground the stubs off the rivets on the top side. No sealer used, so moisture wicked under the paint and filler, resulting in the patch going bad. I ground them out and then hit them with rust neutralizer. After neutralizing them, I again ground the edges smooth, and tack welded the 4 fillers in, so they're permanent. After that I mixed up epoxy resin, and brushed the joints, just to ensure no pinholes would appear later and ruin the paint.
Just have to grind it smooth, and give a thin coat of filler to sand now. After that I'll prime and then decide which of the many white colors would go best with the metallic blue lower body.

Here you are out buying them and I am getting ready to take pictures of mine to put it on the market. If I don't get busy I will have to wait for spring to sell it.
