    paint coming off?

    The other day when I took off my front mud flaps I noticed that there is paint missing down near the front wheel arches:

    <img src="http://users.bigpond.net.au/njms_area/paint.jpg" alt=" - " />

    Its on both sides, although the paint hasn't come off as much on the driver's side, although it is all cracked in the same place. I suppose I need to buy some touch up paint and primer etc to fix that up, or won't it rust?

    While I'm asking about this, is it fairly easy to get rid of all the surface rust along the top of the rear windscreen? I've noticed its got a little worse since all this bad weather.

    cheers,
    Nick

Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    Nick,

    To get rid of that rust u need to remove the rear windscreen ! as the rust is under the seals as well !
    once you clean it up you will need to get the whole roof sprayed ! otherwise it will look weird !

    Where the paint is off your sill's I have seen them cleaned back and primed and painted black...I think it looks smart like that !
