    If I email it to someone can they post it for me?
    You tried going "advanced" and using the paper clip? Use Tapatalk on your phone and upload that way?

    Looks like Tapatalk will do the trick. I'm posting the images of the rust for reference. Couldn't find any other areas of rust around the car. Also posting a pic of the overall condition of the car, which I consider to be very good.

    Yeah just have it fixed man. The sooner the better.

    When I first bought my car I noticed a rust bubble inside the passenger door sill - Right where the door closes and the water gathers? Someone must have nicked the paint there just hard enough to allow moisture to get in. Took it to a body shop down the street who stripped the paint, removed the rust and resprayed it. No one is the wiser and my car is safe.

    Ask around for a good body shop if you don't have one. I have a great mechanic in Maryland who I trust.

    Definitely get it fixed. Doesn't look too bad.

    Here's a scary one from Germany to motivate you!

    That can be cleaned up and touched up.

    +1. Check the top of that lip (behind the grilles) also. I had flaked paint and rust in the same spot as you. I personally just masked it off, sprayed it with rust converter, and then a coat of rubberized undercoat to keep water from getting back to it. I did that to a spot on the bootlid too. Given the location, and knowing it's in a place where literally no one will ever look, I was much more concerned about function than aesthetics.

    I'll try and get to it this coming weekend, thanks for the input. It's not seen often so I'll go same route with function over aesthetics
