front fender rust too

I'll post a pic later, but there's also rust starting in the front fenders as well, behind the tire.

It's in the location of the holes in the wheel arch where the plastic inner fender liner & mud guards attach to the panel. On the passenger side of my car, the corrosion has crept around the corner from the tabs out onto the side of the fender.

UPDATE: some pics...
