Bought into the club

Hi all. Just bought and 07 black cherry 6MT from the original owner. It's spent it's whole life in the DC area, so rust is a concern. I'll be busting out the wire brush and the rust reformer in the next week or so. I'll try and post some before and after pics in a separate thread once I get it done. My goal is to keep the rust at bay long enough to get my money out of it.

Re: Bought into the club

Welcome from the UK.

You're pictures make the rust look mostly surface and superficial, I hope that's so and a good bit of TLC gets it back in good order.

Re: Bought into the club

I agree with Zero's; to me it looks mostly superficial also. Have a great time scratching her belly with the brush! I'd help but I've got Pilates that weekend....
