Nice car but more rust than an 80's Ford

Used as a builders van and can carry huge weights and volumes, mechanically very good, 190000 miles, heavy on petrol on short trips but 40 mpg achievable on long runs. The car does not get serviced and has never broken down, and only replacements in 3 years are a lower steering ball joint and a tailgate strut. Tyres don't last more than 15000 miles.
Achilles heel is rust all over as bad as the bangers I ran years ago. Front wings have rotted through, tailgate, wheel arches and door bottoms have rust patches everywhere. The car was just not painted properly when it was built, some areas have never been painted!!!!
I will run it into the ground as it is not worth repairing the bodywork.
