Preventing bedside rust by adding drain holes.


Recommended Posts

So I recently patched a hole in the bedside of my 88. While I had the wheelwell open I noticed how dirt gathers in the top of the pinch seam where there's no drainhole. The only thing like a drainhole I noticed was about 3" farther up the wheelwell.

 

I'm thinking of drilling 2 or 3 small holes the size of a small rubber body plug/cap just inside of the pinch seam to serve as drain holes.

 

Any opinions?

Do it - can't hurt. BTW, where is Waste Valley? Sounds nice ;)
