yeah they don't really start rusting from the inside. it's usually the bottom and outer edge. I live in salt town and i'm yet to see rust other than the fuel tank straps and suspension parts. Although I wash it atleast once a week during the winter so it doesnt really have time to rust.I hope so for that price. The car is from the north close to where i use to live. Its so nice living in the south. I bought my car 2 years ago and not one speck of rust at all.
