I have a 95 Escort. I had thought those black strips that run the
length of the roof were plastic .. but the paint started coming off of
them this past winter and it looks and feels like rusted metal
So, I have two questions .. WAIT! THREE questions:
1. Am I right? Are they metal or am I imagining things?
2 How worried should I be about this rust? Should I have them
3. If I should replace them, is this do-able (and worth doing --
money-wise) by an average schmoe with a toolbox and an afternoon to
kill (AKA "me") or do I need to bring it to shop?
Thanks much for any help!
