Horsey

Please post the pictures. I am curious what your crossmember looks like following behind those salt trucks. Same shot if you can.

While you are at it take some pics of your brakes.

Seriously I want the crossmember shots

I saw thread on one the UK boards where a guy here took a genuine replacement rear xmember and welded it up so it was a sealed box, no holes anywhere that moisture could get inside. As I recall it took him the better part of a day to cut all the pieces and weld them in, but in the end he has a very durable xmember.

First things first: move inland where there is no salt, and you can afford a 4 car garage

Maybe Bakersfield?

Not a bad idea. I assume road crap got tossed up that way and it delaminated. It has been this way since I got the truck. I never thought anything about it but I should have have gone full insane when I put the new skid plate on and put a new crossmember on too. I am good at wasting money and that seems very logical. It is making my truck inferior and that is sad.

If it makes you feel any better, your cross member is in better shape than the one I used as a replacement.

Make sure you get some shots of the rotors too.

Nice but I wouldnt do the extensions if I went that route. I know what I am going to do.

I am going to live out a commercial for eastwood products

Wire wheel the area
Use this to clean it up
http://www.eastwood.com/ew-pre-paint...osol-11oz.html
Then hit it with this http://www.eastwood.com/ew-fast-etch-32-oz.html

Then hit it with the pre again and finally finish it off with this

You are being lazy. The wire wheel won't get into the seam. Must be an LA thing.

Bang it with a hammer and loosen up the rust and get it all out of there with a pick or something.

It was just a matter of time before someone suggested that.

Only if you want to become known as Needledick the Bugfucker

I'm sure you have something to blow up your inflatable horsey.

You could always use a CO2 setup. Or got to a garage with an air hose.

Could I do whipits at the same time? Wil a co2 bike pump work?


I am not too good with tools so I will ask the same question over and over again. Actually I think when I do it I will skip a huge step like removing old rust. Reminds me of putting new brake pads on and not new rotors.

Would highly recommend the POR15. I've used the Eastwood stuff and it's good too but there is really something about the POR15 that makes it different.

Would still go through the step process and even use the Eastwood stuff if you like but finish it with the POR15.


I work with a powdercoater quite a bit and he often does "experiments" with metal stock and different techniques to coat and protect metal. He says the back of the vehicles are the absolutely most corrosive areas. He doesn't think it's just that there is entrapment or poor design. He thinks there is more "free radicals" and other corrosive elements that bias there from flow. No idea. But it seems that these areas are bad on all trucks, G-wagen, FJ62, etc, etc.

BTW......if you're going to f-ck your truck please use protection.......POR your c-ck.
