It looked like a sneaky toggle switch at first.

asked and answered!

The truck had been converted when I got it, but all the stuff was still there minus the air springs. In the beginning I removed all the lines and hoses, etc, and any other related item that would no longer be needed and clipped off that harness and sealed it so water could never get in. I am still finding left over clips attached to the frame every time I get under the truck. There has to be at least a couple dozen that I have removed so far.

Yep, I removed most of my air stuff-ECU, storage tank, some hoses, entire harness, manifold- left the pump for now.

I used that big grommet to pass my ARB harness through...
I just mounted my ARB air compressor inside the factory box in front of the original air compressor(no longer being used obviously).

Anyone ever use the EAS pump to air up tires? I wonder how long it will last--lol

I bought some waxoyl but it's messy and doesn't apply as nicely as the eastwood stuff, and takes forever to cure.

The Eastwood stuff I tested out in a couple spots months ago because I needed to see how well they would hold up. The "toggle switch" thing was one test area that I sprayed. I painted the inside of the frame and undercoated the mid section of the floors when I had the transmission out of it. Since then it hasn't been a lot of miles, but over six months including a trip to Uwharrie and I am impressed so I went with that for the wheel wells etc.

This part can get discouraging for sure. All those dirty little areas, and you just know that down there somewhere things are gonna be ugly.

Let's try that again

Bummer, I had more great pics but they keep getting turned sideways or upside down, so I'll post them on the Buckhorn Imports Facebook page.

This is one area I need to tackle as well. For short term I used POR15 on the driver's floor, yet, need to get back.

What are you planning for the corrosion protection?

And really looking good!!

Doesn't look too bad! The spot in the rear… it that from the exhaust?
I did this last fall but I have a water leak I still need to track down on the driver's side. Either windshield or door seal. Then I can put the rest of the interior back in.

Checked out the FB pics and looks really nice. Very cool that Eastwood material also is available in white. What is the plan for filling the flap bracket holes? Really setting a high benchmark for RRCs!

The more "serious" rust patches were sanded/ground down or brushed the any rust was treated with Ospho (which is phosphoric acid driveway cleaner btw) and that converts the iron oxide to an inert iron phosphate. Then, white ERE

As usual, the front mudflap bracket was the source of this rust. Lucky me this all was in real nice shape and the bracket bolt plates both came off easily. Will be replacing them with stainless hardware, and if I need to remove the front mudflap bracket going forward I'll just have to pull the carpet back.

Besides that, it appeared the passenger was getting moisture through these 3 holes in the floor, which were originally "sealed" with duct tape dots...

In places where the original seam sealer has shrunk and cracked, such as here on rhe door sill, I resealed it using the same 3M brushable seam sealer I used in the cargo area.

Then, also used the white ERE on the sills and applied extra coats to the floor areas I hit earlier.

Also used the seam sealer along the door threshold area, which should have been sealed from the factory I think. See pic

Joel, great looking truck. What was the process for the Ospho? How applied? Let it dry/wipe it off? How much did you use?
I have a gallon of the stuff for when my '95 D1 is ready.
Thanks

Yes, at some point the LH converter broke apart and the substrate migrated to the center muffler, clogged it, and it got super hot. Melted the carpet and underlayment. I had hid it up till now (see the enthusiasm for the new Genuine rubber mats earlier in the thread) but when I put it back together I will be replacing the carpet.
