So, the seam sealer in the lower door looks totally fine, no signs of rust. And the other picture is after I removed the sealer. Rust all underneath. Sometimes you can’t see the rust until the skin is removed, if it hasn’t progressed far enough yet. This is on every door I work on, honestly.

Wow! Crazy to see this. I’m so glad it’s getting taken care of before it’s catastrophic! The only door I really knew had a small rust issue in the seam was the ds rear door.

I know, this is what everyone thinks. I can see why but really any water that drips off the window will go right in the bottom. So they all must have rust I would assume.
