    Pictures added.

    As you can see, it's not horrendous. But it's bad enough to warrant sorting!!

    Have you cleaned out and checked the inner wheel arch lips? Rust build up around those area`s can get pretty bad. Both our E36`s (95+96) needed some attention on the rear ( mine being the worst). Its a sod to do but when its rust free, a good coat of anti rust paint is a god send.

    I haven't given it the anti-rust treatment, but I know the nearside rear arch is starting to bubble on the outside.

    Link me to some of this anti-rust paint?

    Perfect little kit, more than enough paint and kurust for a single car.

    That rust is coming from the inside out. You will spend a fortune getting the car to look good, then a year later it will start bubbling back....
