Thanks for the advice!

To be honest, the job does look daunting for a novice like me!!!

I'm glad (well sort of!) that other people have the same problem! Today I parked next to a T reg 1.2 Clio when I went to the gym and the rust was so bad it had started spreading to the outside wing from the petrol cap area!

So mine didn't look so bad!

Regarding the hammerite stuff (I believe it called "Kurust"???) - I was advised by a fellow member of my other Club/Forum I'm a member of (especially for all Mk's of Clio) (if you're interested in having a look at the website or joining - please send me a private message and I'll give you details of the club) (Can't be accused of spamming that way!he recommended me to try cleaning the visible areas of rust, treat & paint it up - sounds good to me!

Any pics or details of your 99 Clio on this site???

Thanks again! Hope to chat again soon!
