    That's my $1k beater Miata, which was never winter driven! All that damage was caused by wet carpets & underlay due to a drippy convertible top.
    This looks a lot like my ancient Tacoma! Got the floor all cut back to clean metal just need some warm days so I can start welding....

    Just got rid of a Saab with a rotted spare tire well and holes in the driver and passenger floor, all from various water leaks. The car had other issues as well so I decided not to sink time and $$$ into it that Id never get back.

    I'd love to see that Taco project - post a thread in the lounge if you're taking pics.
