Yeah, bit of a shame it hasn't seen some undercover time during it's life up to now.
Pull the trims off around the glass - most likely find some rubbish/dirt around the urethane gluing, gets wet and can be a nice rust starter, because the trims hold it in.
The lower weatherstrips on the rear qtr fixed glass will need to come off - the clips don't seal real good over time - water gets in, particularly the front holes. Water then runs down the rear wheelarch, soaks in well with the soundproofing, no holes to drain.
Externally, you'll see bubble rust in the doglegs in front of the rear wheels.
You can make up rubber washers to fit over those clips, so they seal when clipped in.
Same deal with the C pillar body coloured fascia's too.

yeah my top windscreen aperture has a small amount of rust at the moment, but i simply cant afford to do anything about it until i get a job thats better than s**t, which in this place will probably be never.

regarding the rear 1/4 belt moulds, i believe the clips are NLA from Ford, and they break pretty easy so i might have to work my way around it... or break the clips off and urethane the mould on :lol:

If you take the inside panel out, you can get to most of them and squeeze them to 'pop' them.
Front one you'll have to carefully lever out - put a bit of cloth tape on the panel to help protect it.
Be careful with these, as you can bow the moulds - they can be hard to straighten if you bend them too much.
