As we know autos have spots of interest. On the 66 /67 Chevelle it was along the bottom of the back window on many pickups it’s the cabs bottom back corner. Has anyone noticed or think they know the spot to watch on the SSR for metal “transformation” I have heard the frame at the cut/re-weld to shorten area, is a place to watch as the protection was disturbed when reworked in the factory. Yes we all keep our Roadsters clean and pampered, but I’m just trying to find the weak link to monitor. Transformation = 4 letter word starting with R.

Yeah, I don't know anything about metal transformation, but if it was rust you were talking about :glol :glol mine would be a good one to look at....you know 58000 miles, I drive in the winter, I hardly wash it and I have more chips than a frito-lay bag. You can come down and look at it any time you want. :glol

WOW_FCTR … Because you do drive your SSR a lot and have to perform this task in icky weather. You would make an ideal candidate. There for I would like to nominate you for “Fanatic hot spot watch dog”. Your mission should you accept it, is to report back to us the first signs of adverse condition to your SSR’s metal work. Although their will be no pay, nor front page glory, you will receive the respect of all fellow owners. :flag

Well we already know that I have rust near that rock chip on the front hood :jester

When I had the new exhaust put on last year there was already rust on the underside....


Well after I'm done emptying all the boxes from my move (oh did I mention that I clsoed on a house Thurs and moved in Fri?) which will take about 5 or 6 months, I'll get out and examine the truck...the weather should be nice then.

[I just noticed we have a new edit function. When you hit the edit button it brings up a edit area in your message in the thread (as opposed to bringing up a whole new page)...it's interesting].

.... 4 letter words

HA HA rust you say... that’s just vulgar :glol ... As you can see in the picture I have the Canadian G.M. dealer installed equivalent to you suggestion to stop "Transformation". :rolleyes: The Verdict on this gismo is still out. I’m told they use it on ocean freighters.

Big Jim that's a keeper for me thanks
