I appreciate the pictures bud. Unfortunately, the rust has progressed too far for what i intended to do with this project.

Sorry you personally feel that way. Definitely not too far gone! Not gone at all. Daily driven and just passed state safety inspection, as needed every year here in NH. Not sure what picture(s) turned you off, but the surface rust on her is nothing for a 33 year old vehicle living within the salt belt in NH all it's life. What saved this from being rotted out by now, as the average >10 year old vehicles up here usually are(especially without care), is the low miles and being garage kept most of it's life. Floors are solid and there is nothing structurally wrong with her. Anything that shows any cosmetic rust can be replaced, like exhaust, trailer hitch, cross-member, propeller shafts, control arms, and rockers. The important things that cannot be unbolted, like the "frame" and floors(that are a part of the frame/unit body) are all good. Nothing soft. The outer body panels are also in good shape.

But I understand that people from non-rust belt areas are not use to seeing any rust.

Anyways, I wish you good luck with your search and hope you are lucky enough to find something with low miles on it.

And thanks again for taking interest in her

None...yet :p

I have seen cars and trucks with ten times the rust in only a couple of years. That thing looks pretty damn good considering the age and mileage.

Absolutely, for a 23 year old vehicle from the North, it is in great shape!

I will put this out here for the OP and any other prospective buyers who may read this. MY plans for this was a cross country wheeler. For MY needs, i would have to put 3-4k of work into having every inch of the unibody undercarriage to be sanded and repainted to stop the future rust, changing all hardware, and lines. This is by NO means something a normal person would need to do. They could run this vehicle for another 10 years without problems.

Im going to be sending the pictures to my resto guy to see what he would charge, but it may just be beneficial for me to look at a higher mileage southern vehicle. but that is MY situation, and does detract from the great vehicle that this seller is offering.
