Hi, because of salty wintertime here we have disconnected my C5. we found the frame had light rust on it and decided to clean and repaint it. i thought about there´s maybe rust inside the frame and because of a test from the biggest oldtimer magazine here in germany (they did the test over many years) choose to fill the best body-cavity sealing in that is possible to do yourself. it´s this: http://mike.british-cars.de/rustprevention.htm i have an old electric chip pan to heat it up and use a hair dryer to warm the frame - so it can get everywhere maybe the C5 last longer than me then, . . . . bye doc
