Bloody well done! It was fun to watch and listen to. Blimey, they could have spent an extra $50 and cleaned and repainted the engine and trans.

Good show to watch, I pick up a few ideas now and then. I've also wondered about some of the detail work, or lack of detail sometimes. Mike

Have you guys noticed the rust issue is much greater than our worst state? I wonder if they don't use any kind of undercoating. Everything under the cars is always nice and crusty and it doesn't bother Ed China at all.

The guys down south generally get things a little easier,to be honest that truck will more than likely never see a salted road.
In Scotland most guys looking for an older 'collector' type vehicle will invariably head south,the survival rate is still much better there.

The authorities here in Scotland could put Bonneville to shame by the amount they throw down on the roads.

Salt's still the single biggest killer of tin up here.

Here too. Now they spray a salt brine on the roads. It's supposed to work faster than regular salt. But I heard a report the other day that it's wrecking the cars even faster, because in liquid form it splashes up into everything under the car and rusts things out faster. They recommend washing your car every week, but who does that when it's cold out?

Salt brine is applied to dirt roads to keep dust down. Folks who live on such roads are getting a dose of salt year round. Vehicles that make it past 10 years of age without rust damage is a miracle. I've had to replace brake lines, power steering hoses, spring perches, shackles, front axle supports, brake drums, backing plates, doors, fenders, bed boxes, tailgates, etc.

I've got a double whammy of the stuff,I live less than three miles from the big blue as well.

If the road salt doesn't get ya,the atmosphere will... ohwell

After stormy weather you can actually see the salt crystals on the paintwork.
Small wonder I invested heavily on POR-15 for my chassis.
I still need to address the body and paint though...
