Re: It rusts like an Alfa... (ljjones)

You would think that that would be covered!? I wonder what the rust coverage truly is on ouR caRs?

You must have never owned an alfa. Mine disappeared after several years, replaced by an orange fluffy pile on the floor of the garage. Taught me everything I did not want to know about bondo!<br>regards,<br>Rich

Re: It rusts like an Alfa... (Johann)

Ha, ha! Just had to read this as a former Alfa owner. On my Alfa, the frame rails rusted and the frame collapsed to the point that it was tough to open the doors.<p>I saw your other post that described the IC coating- I have some large flakes too, but not on the horizontal bars, just on the vertical part.<p>Can you repaint this with just a can of flat black spray?

Re: It rusts like an Alfa... (pino)

I wonder if it might be possible to bolt <A HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacrificial_anode" TARGET="_blank">sacrificial anodes</A> on rust-susceptible portions of the car. These are metallic substances designed to rust so the rest of your (ship/submarine/tank/...S60R) does not. I think they were typically Zinc based.

Re: It rusts like an Alfa... (vLGrok)

I don't see any rust in those photos of the front ends. I see some paint that has flaked off what appears to be galvanized parts, probably due to rocks hitting them. Now the exhaust photos, that's rust. oclv

Re: It rusts like an Alfa... (oclv)

Mine has done the same thing as well ... at the April GTG I showed a few people that it was happening to most of the cars there. I know Kelly had some peeling and KVB has bubbling on his. I was washing my car, by hand, one day and the small front intercooler fins started peeling on me. I noticed that it had bubbles towards the outside where it didn't fall off yet. I took my car in for warrenty work and for them to look at this. They told me that they sent pictures to Volvo for eval. I can see this being a bad problem for ALL R owners! Maybe they'll come out with a proper FMIC now. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> If you look close enough you can see mines missing some paint too ...<p><IMG SRC="http://217.160.73.76/Kampmann/Bilder/20060415/20060415_0367.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: It rusts like an Alfa... (Johann)

I know I'm resurrecting an old thread, but I'm experiencing the same issue and am wondering if anybody has successfully gotten warranty coverage for this. If not, any suggestions as to how to fix? I'm thinking of just sanding off all the peeling paint, scuffing the galvanized metal and using some kind of black heat resistant engine paint.
