    Darreld, I'm curious....how are they keeping the body from flash rusting while they are working on it? It looks like it's bare metal and isn't protected. Just wondering if there's a trick that car builders use to keep the raw steel from surface rust. I see it all the time....

    I am not really sure what he used. I think he wiped it down with something before it left the body shop but I will have to check with him.

    Horseplay I Don't Care. Do you?

    I have good, clean bare metal parts laying out in the garage that have been in that state for over a year without any sign of surface rust. I think as long as it is absolutely clean (rust free) and it doesn't see any high humidity metal can stay that way quite a while.
