    How severe is the rust? If you don't have any holes, get that rust sanded down, primered and resprayed soon.

    No issues here -- but our car has only rarely seen any weather. Paint may have been thin in that area.

    You could get some POR-15 "paint over rust that kills rust and doesn't allow it to spread and then finish it off with color matching paint to match the rest of the car. I don't have really any rust on my TA.
