Re: Vel Satis bubbling - is this what they'll become known for?

Got to agree with Horatio, 8 years for the first sign of rust would tend to suggest the corrosion has intiated due to an external factor, rather than paint not coating the panel sufficiently.

Handles can gather & trap water, so it could remain hidden for some time.

Best of luck with a warranty claim.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
