I just looked through your history, I see you always ask the sane question three of four times in a row, is there something else you could be doing.

First of all both the brand and the model names of cars are proper names and proper names must be capitalized. Honda Accord. Yes, you shall the leagues of teenager that do not write this correctly. Do not follow that path of error. Same for the punctuation on the last sentence, or lack of any. All sentences require a punctuation mark at the end. In your case, I am considering that you are asking question and therefore a question mark is in order. You shall never read anything published that leaves a sentence without punctuation. Please punctuate all sentences. Any body shop person that tells you that rust is inevitable is doing the job correctly. I have a 14 year old car with zero rust due the paint and protection of the metals via the process of applying primer and paint and clear coat. Rust is the product of exposure of bare metal to the environment. IF a body panel is removed from this Accord, repaired, treated, primed, painted and clear coated, there is no reason to estimate that rust shall develop in five years. This vehicle just got the rust after 15 years of service probably due to damage or weathering of the initial factory treatment. I would estimate that this car is worth not the market value of let us say $3,000. The value of a car to a person is actually the value of the replacement car is this one is to be sold or junked. My best recommendation is for you to go to at least two additional body shops for an estimate and consultation and do not tell them what this other guy said. Unless you are driving gravel roads with the ensuing damage to the underside of the car caused by rocks, there is no reason to accept anything but another 15 years of service on properly repaired body components.

It will look pretty if you get the rust fixed, is it worth $750 to have a car that looks good? It isn't going to make it run any differently.
