From the way the flares looked, I had my suspicions this is what they had done.
Not looking good.
To much Bondo!

Check on both sides, especially behind the gas tank.

There is a "cavity" that runs forward if the bulkhead, above the lower sills. This area can collect fine sand and dust, which can be a rust-prone area. I vacuumed mine out very well, and put a bunch of bedliner-type stuff in there.

It probably doesn't help if corrosion is there already, but you will never have better access than now.....

Still stripping the car. Wiring harness is completely out, most of interior gone. Doors stripped down and removed, very happy most of the Stainless trim came off no issue except for left roof channel stainless trim which someone had siliconed on....took hours to get it off without destroying it. Next step is onto hoist to strip suspension and mount to rotisserie....
