For everyone else, the Texas hill country is quite dry and arid, so rust is not a great issue. No snow, no salt, bit even much mud. I could see that rig, with a satin clear over the top of the paint as a great candidate for use as a movie car.
Luckily Jon nothing leaks and nothing is broken....yet I know.
And it's a "drive around Round Rock" jeep, Fredericksburg is where I bought it, actually Luckenbach.

Round rock is pretty dry these days too! I'm just up i35 in temple. If you need anything give me a shout.

I've been reworking a 5th owner basket case and getting near the end. It's was an east tx jeep from lake Rayburn. It had/has major rust issues. Buy oem or nos parts if you can. Almost all the repro stuff is not up to snuff.
