    As an owner of various 1980s Alfas, none of the rust remedies worked worth a ****. The only option is to cut out and replace

    Suggest you take it to a body shop while it is still on the inner lip. If you let it stray beyond then you will need the whole panel painted which is not the outcome you want.

    Thanks for the feedback guys I will look at the options and inspect further to see if it's only in the one area or if any is hidden behind the arch trim!

    Hopefully it's only where I can see it, downsides of being by the sea and having the car outside!

    Absolutely agree that it's worth bunging some dosh at it now with a reputable body-shop and nip it in the bud; also anything else which you can't see - there is BOUND to be some!
    Rust is like an iceberg (only one ninth visible), so don't take risks.
    Just had my classic Mini treated and it's worth every penny. Value preserved.
