Any of you fd2 owners had bother with rust? Guys at honda say there prone for it coz they don't under seal them properly in japan

Here's before and after

The arch sealer stops a few inches further up and where it's double skinned the water gets in and sits there. Mine are fine though.

Hopefully won't come back for long time

They said could come back as early as 6 month but shouldn't do for years???

Looks good, great result hope it lasts :D

My arches have been fine- was undersealed prior to me buying in 2008, just had it done again earlier in the month tho as it was looking a bit shoddy when it was in bits :)

Good job. How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking? Mines is fine, undersealed as soon as it got in the country and I touched it up a couple of weeks ago to be on the safe side. But good to know if I ever need it done. PM me if you'd prefer. ;)

I wouldn't get overly hung up on Honda doing paintwork. I've seen work from Honda bodyshops that is nowhere near as good as getting an independent to do it.
