Barry, try a small putty knife to get into the cracks, and put a piece of wood against the outer part before hitting it with a hammer lest the next thread from you is asking how to remove dents from it

My rear crossmember. I must have had my phone angled wrong. I'll see if I can get a better pic tomorrow, but you get the point - no delaminating.

That is pretty. Can I get some pics in the same position I took my pics in? What is all over that thing?

I hope that's a joke, right? Horsey's comeback was weak at best...I do appreciate Horsey's attempt at something rather than staying quiet.

I will say this whole thing is funny. Yes I will treat it and yes my truck has a flaw that is keeping me up at night. I can't believe it is 8:19 and I am awake. Its been 17 years and this is the extent of my truck's rust. If I don't fix it I figure the truck will turn to dust in a week or so. I feel the value dropping rapidly.

On a serious note I wonder how many people have even looked at their crossmember from this angle.

Barry ... I'm thinking that someone as detailed oriented as your self may want to take a more thorough approach ... try getting a 1mm drill bit and performing root canal surgery on the delaminated sections ... a hole every 5mm should be sufficient ... then you can inject your chosen rust converter product to the heart of the problem. Knowing that the inside of your x-member is now completely inert and rust proof should help you sleep again a night.

Well played Horsey.

I found a good shot of you too. I will not add it to my truck though until the rust is gone.

Much the same way that we get a kick out of what is considered "minor rust" when buying car from the east coast. Just a matter of perspective, I guess.

My G4 DII spent less than a year on the East Coast and has some surface rust on the frame/underside. Definitely more than your average CA car or truck but pretty minimal and nothing to worry about. When I brought it to my mechanic for the first time, he just about lost it and told me there was so much rust underneath. It's definitely a matter of perspective as I'm sure he rarely sees any rust.

My truck spends 15 minutes outside and something starts rusting. I can hear it rusting as I drive. Good thing I'm not as...detail oriented as Barry.

I tried to patch weld mine and POR-15 it and it lasted all of about 4 months before rust started showing up again. I still haven't found a decent fix for the rear crossmember.

I was wondering if I should do anything with mine in regards to welding. Figure my truck has been like this for the past 10 years and not gotten any worse. Would it make sense to weld it shut?

This really is horrible. Now when I try to sell the truck I will have to disclose the horrible rust.

Barry you should just leave it alone. The next thread will be about how it now looks like crap and has dents in it, and the rest of the frame paint doesn't match, etc. etc.

Do you have something else you can obsess about perhaps?

I got nothing else. I started hitting the crossmember with a hammer on Saturday. Claw side right?

I prefer the ball peen style, but claw will do.
