RE: {Spam?} [DML] Upon closer inspection I found...



Nathan,
 
My boat has to contend with the corrosive effects of salt water. Over the years I've used a product sold at the marina, I think it is called something like 'Mercruiser Corrosion Block'. Works very well, holds corrosion at bay in that harsh environment. I spray it on every piece of metal I can.
 
When I bought VIN 3579 ~18 months ago, one of the first things I did was to put it up on the ramps, crawl underneath with my heavy duty very sharp and strong dental tool, pry loose epoxy everywhere I could, then spray corrosion block everywhere I could. I repeat this at frequent intervals, at least the spraying part. Very little new loose epoxy. Visually this appears to be working well. I don't consider myself any kind of expert on this subject, have found feedback from some other owners on this approach to not be very positive, but at the same time have the feeling that this may be a reasonably effective approach. It really appears to do an excellent job with banishing the rust. You might do better with this, than spraying the rustoleum.
 
Other owners - any feedback on this?
 
Peter Cameron

Subject: {Spam?} [DML] Upon closer inspection I found...



....that my frame, while in very good overall shape, has some minor
rust issues. All of them center around the engine mount box. I had
discovered some superficial rust in this area earlier and made a
mental note to check it out, now I found that some of the epoxy
chips off. The metal underneath is brown but not totally rusted
through; I would say it is surface rust. Now here is where it gets
interesting; the effected section extends inside of the frame box!
None of the metal I can see inside the frame is severely corroded. I
can not punch a screwdriver through metal anywhere on my car however
I do know that if I left these areas totally unattended for there
would be some serious hell to pay in the future.

I plan to order some POR 15 to cover up all that I can. What do you
wise people suggest I do for the inside portion? I suppose I can
chip away as much as possible by sticking a knife in through the
small access holes, then spray with rustoleum? I believe that my
leaky otterstat caused this rust over the years as the car spent
most of its 25 years in Arizona. Cutting holes in my frame for
access is NOT an option for me at this point financially. I do not
plan on driving in the rain. Any suggestions?

Nathan
