So that means my shell should be Galvanised then yer ? Any places on our shells which are any worse or better now they have been Galvanised ?
Yep. All Austria built WJ (WG to be technically correct) models are galvanised. The clue usually is a stone chip on the bonnet that just stays silver (unless you chip right through the zinc too!). Other than that its the same shell. Only prob is that most replacement panels used after accidents are not galvanised so if you have rusting wings etc then is probably had a prang at some point in its life. Ive heard that some early petrol engines WG models are NOT galvanised but never seen that proved.
BTW galvanising does not mean they are rust proof, just better protected. My friend CRD had seroius rust underneath as a result of serious off roading have bashed the crap out of the underside and scraped off any protection and zinc that might once of been there. I have a few tiny pin pricks of rust under mine but you have to look for them and its still very rust free for a 115,000 mile ten year old Jeep!
