Saab 99 Turbo part 17 – Hatch corrosion repair

Here’s something I forgot to post earlier.

There was some corrosion issues with the ”good” trunk hatch also. After removing all the accessories it was clear some welding needed to be done around the window frame. It’s one of the usual spots to rust.

There was enough of rust damage around the window frame of the hatch that we decided to replace the corroded sections.
