Saving 80% in exchange for more labor time is good salvage-craft. Question: lots of the rust on these panels has straight lines marking the boundary of the rusted zone. Why is that?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
