Life in the rust belt

Sydney was complaining of a scraping noise coming from the front left (driver's side) wheel of her 2012 Honda Civic. I pulled the wheel and off came the backing plate. Anywhere there was a provision for a fastener to hold it on was all rusted out.
As I've mentioned before, there's a quite a bit of work to do on the brakes and suspension (due to rust) on her car that I hope to tackle this summer, so I will add "replace backing plates" to that list.
