Weapons of mass dest-rust-ction Weapons of mass dest-rust-ction

There’s a nice big hole in the rear left quarter of my Legacy and my inspection sticker expires soon. Time to gather up the tools and the questionable things that help make the job easier somehow.

There is a Beetle convertible in this very same shade of light cream near me for about $3500. Didn’t get to look inside to see if it’s a stick.
