In Dutch we have a saying “oude liefde roest niet”. Translated: “old love doesn’t rust”. But old car love unfortunately does :-/

Rust is one of the reasons my first Renault 18 is still is storage. There is a lot of welding needed on this car.

When I first saw my second Renault 18 I was amazed to find this car is all but rust free.

I’m planning to keep her that way. To make sure of that she will get a special anti rust treatment within several weeks. I will give you an update on that in one of my next posts.

What are your experiences with rust on your old Renault? Feel free to share your stories and images of your restoration projects!
