    New HKS high flow exhaust fitted but underside rust

    Fitted the new HKS exhaust, sounds and looks amazing, doesn't hang too low either

    However noticed quite a bit of rust from the rear subframe back, I guess I could treat the surface rust myself but the one that concerns me is the rear side member, its squishy under finger pressure

    I guess I need to go at it with a rotary tool but thinking if its as bad as I suspect, I think its going to be tricky to repair without taking things apart i.e. getting to the back of the side member

    MOT coming up so thinking I need to think about addressing this now

    Can't see your images bud. Bit sounds like your rear sills might be rotten? Or floor? Will all need to be cut out and welded up. Check out my project thread for details
