It's not rust, it's patina. There, problem solvedyo wrote:mo-i wrote:Over here classic cars with a Californian registration are sold as inherently rust free. Hmm
So how does the pacific air in Los Angeles differ from the air further north? Sales myth?
I'm not seeing any rust on the chassis or anything like that. Not even on trim. I've seen some vehicles that park outside with a little superficial corrosion on trim pieces but nothing that isn't easily corrected. Also, if you go 5 miles inland this is just not a problem. I'm 1 block from the ocean so I'm getting the worst of it.
Where I'm having issues is tools in the tool box. Steel chisels for example. No Bueno. I thought being in a tool chest which is in the garage would have some level of protection but clearly it doesn't. In my house, I have a vintage fan collection and a mid century chrome shelving unit and both are showing signs of corrosion.
Sorry, waaaay off topic here!
