Noticed a bit of rust had returned whilst looking under the car during
the week,so i've cut it out and getting it welded tomorrow.Also replacing
the rear springs and renewing the cv joints

I checked the drains and they are in the proper position.I think it is just
a common fault on the make up of the calibra as it was the same bit needing
repaired on the se6
