Hey guys just wondering if any of you have had a similar rust problem in the same area and if so what you did to fix it? I know it will require taking the window out and grinding all the rust away before welding in a new piece, anychance they make repair panels for such an area? Was just curious as Its become a pressing issue for me since its leaking into the trunk and back seat... any info would be greatly appreciated. cheers

That's a fairly common area for rust. I recall seeing a repair panel for the window channel area somewhere on this site and knowing our members someone will likely soon post with a link to the thread. I thought I saved it in my favorites but just looked and couldn't find it.

 

If its any consolation mine was that bad as well.

Yes, also had my rear window repaired for same issue.  Bad sections removed & replaced with metal.  Someone had tried filling in the bad areas with Bondo & Beer Cans in it's earlier life.  I have never seen patch panels for this area myself (other than the lower panel) but would make the overall repair(s) much easier than having to form those patches.  As you see in my last pic, that lower panel won't cover the corners of lower window.  Are you doing the repair(s) yourself?

To all - the website has been changed and the links changed with it.  The hew link to our rear (and front) window channels and patch panels is www.beldenspeed.com/rust-patch-panels.  We are also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/beldenspeed

 

Thank you to the Monte Carlo community as the interest has been very high.
