    Hi -

    I just got back from the local inspection garage and learned that my '91 1500 Blazer was "rejected" because of rust on the frame rails and cab mounts. I was unaware this was an issue. I bought the truck a few months ago as a weekend work around the house vehicile, It looks great, with very minimal visible rust. I just paid $200 to have brand new winshield installed beacuse of a crack and another in $120 in exhaust work. Thought I was all set to get the trucker a valid sticker. Quite surprized when rejected. I looked underneath and there is rusting on the rails and where the mounts are. Question now is, what will something like this cost to get fixed so I can get the truck to pass inspection. This is in Northern Virgina.

    Appreciate any feedback.

    Bob

    Sounds like they were trying to hard to find a reason to reject you. Maybe throw some paint over it and try another inspection place?

    throw some bedliner on it, the texture will hide the rust.
