    Question Anyone have any rust problems on their MK4's?

    As above, does anyone have this problem, and if so where?

    I know the G is glavanised, but wondering whether its worth Waxoyling the box sections of mine to stop potential rust?

    I've got a bubble on a rear arch, the rear arches arnt galvanised I dont think. Seen a few rusty ones now.

    I rubbed them back and hammerite and undersealed them last summer. Seems to have got no worse
