    I was finally able to lay eyes on the new Burb last night. Its an 89 3/4 ton 4WD Burb, pretty much SPOTLESS. I bought this truck from Westy, who was TOTALLY cool for letting this super clean truck go! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Anywho, the ONLY place there is any rust is on the bottom inside of the rear barn doors. Its just starting under there, just like a 5-6" spot on the very bottom of the door. Just surface rust too... Whats the BEST way to put a stop to the rust now while its just starting up? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif I really want to keep this truck CLEAN!

    All suggestions welcome!

    Zakk, post that thing you say...

    This thread is useless without pics. Where are the Pics Dan!!! People want to see that rig.

    I bought some rust killer stuff at AZ, its water based paint on with a brush. Turns the rust into paintable primer. Worked good on my floor after I sandblasted it.

    Ive used POR-15 and it seems to be good stuff. Just clean the area up good with a wire brush and them be sure there is no dirt or grease.
    I might have a small can left if you want it. I little bit goes a long way.

    Also, you should probably check the inside of those doors.

    how much you pic that up for? Thats a pretty nice looking burban, though I'm not sure I should ask about the wire going from the grill through the cab. I agree with the one before that wire brush/wheel and clean the area then apply a good rust inhibitor. You really need to clean the area up cause you may find that what looks just lik some surface rust is just what you can see and their may be some real rust around it.

    The wires you see in the pics were put in place to flat tow it home. They were used to light the rear lights. I'll be taking them out eventually, but last night I was too excited... I was just standing there staring at her! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Sweet! Otherwise, I'll hit up my local Napa, and get enuf to coat all the under side of the doors! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif You think that one bottle would suffice for 6 doors? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    WTF?!?! I must have missed something here! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Where exactly was this surface rust? Can you get a better shot, a close up, of the area you found?

    You can always give the Sub back to me if you don't want it! /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA! Give it back? I think not big guy! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif There is just a HINT of rust beginning on the rear doors themselves. If you open the doors, and look on the very bottom where the "lip" is at, there is just a tiny sign of rust there.

    No matter which way you cook it though, this Burb is B - U - TEE - FUL!!!!

    I think that I may take rust prevention measures on the bottom side of ALL the doors, just to be sure that this baby is staying rust free for a LONG TIME!!!

    The POR15 idea is a good one. Best stuff I've found yet.
