the dangers of salt

Post by dynchel on Tue Jun 03, 2014 8:54 am

This a 2011 F-250 ford super duty truck with less than 5000 miles on the clock. It belongs to the Morton salt company, just shows how a bad enviroment affects sheetmetal.

Wow, and the factory coatings are so much better now. Imagine how fast the things corroded when they sucked!

Note to self: never buy a used vehicle from a salt company...

Looks like every Ford and for that matter Dodge and Chevy around here that is that old. Does it still have 1/4 panels? Dodges here I think are the worst. 1/4's totally gone on 7 or 8 year old trucks.

Looks like a typical Michigan vehicle ! My '92 Chevy pickup isn't quite that bad ( yet )..
No real prevention from rust, just stuff to slow it down....
