Rust on buying a Sami?

OK, so I know jeeps, and their "special rust place" is near the gas tank, ont he inside of the frame rail. It'll rust out there first. Is ther ea "special place" on a Zuki to look for? Anything else I should look out for while I'm looking around?

Re: Rust on buying a Sami?

when you find rust spot,i found you can take a cap and wand from a wd-40 can and place that on a can of extend,drill 1/8 inch holes so you can get in between pannels of truck and hose it down.its a good preventative.wear plastic gloves ,it will turn you skin black.good luck ranger rick

Re: Rust on buying a Sami?

Mostly around and behind the fender flares, and in the back corners on the inside of the tub. frames seem to do okay. When you are down this way this week We will show you what to look for,

Re: Rust on buying a Sami?

My '88, although a California Samurai, lived in Bloomington, IN for 5 years and Orono, ME for 5 years. Since they used salt on the roads, it rusted out where the back seat rubber bumpers contact the floor. The floor board rusted from the outside in completely perferating the floor.

Re: Rust on buying a Sami?

hi psf4x4,extend is a product you use to stop rust.you must have rust for it to work.a chemical reaction takes place when you spray or paint extend on rust.the rust converts to a nonferrous metal.the rust does not come back.we used it for years in the steam pits and power plants in the government.hope this helps.

Re: Rust on buying a Sami?

RR..if i go somewhere like let say napa and asked for extend there just going to look at me funny. i'm in the mil. we have something we call rust inhibitor. its white and has kind of a milky texture. maybe the same same. the reason i was asking was i was out in the marsh playing around and i got stuck...well high tide came in and the water was up to the steering wheel. it was only submerged about an hour. i washed the whole thing down several times with frech water and sprayed many coats of wd40 on it trying to prevent rust. i had to come to japan for six months. so it's no telling whats it's going to look like when i get back in january. basically i was an idiot.
