heh... I remember, being ever-so-eager, following my '74 Plymouth Duster into the body shop (it had the traditional rust above the front wheelwells, a bit behind the rear wheelwells, etc.) to watch over the whole process.

When they started taking (what looked like) a small pickaxe to the body panels, I literally had to leave the shop as I was getting sick to my stomach watching the process. I didn't go back until after they'd welded in new steel.

watch your paint close folks...so much for the supposed rust proofing process Dodge has in place...my car is regulary (weekly minimum) washed year round.
A few others in the 09/10 MY have reported rust bubbles in the same location

Yep that would be disconcerting. I'm taking it that the rust started along where the wheel well liner meets the quarter/rocker. I wonder if any type of sealant would be useful from keeping water and salt from getting into the seam there.

Take it easy

started as a small rust bubble in the paint...if you can see it in the paint it's going to be a lot worse underneath
