Another common point is around the rear shock mount area. You may recall my finding these holes in 'Tank' a while back.

If you can get to these early enough (like I did by chance) it will not be too bad. A mechanic inspected mine & found it only to be the inner floorpan. Under the car was solid & is now waxoyled.

As Mike pointed out, that lip at the rear. Mine was apparently quite good!

Repairs, well mine ended up like this, a small plate was spot welded over the biggest hole inside the car. I then sprayed waxoyl down into the cavities. Filled the holes with instant metal & slapped 2 coats of Hammerite on.
Under the bumper, I Kurusted, filled with fibre resin, then put 2 coats of Hammerite on. The area cannot be seen once the bumper is back

It only takes a few minutes to check these points, & those Mike points out. It will be a few minutes very well spent
