    Does this shock tower look infected?

    I was expecting some rust. I dropped the K to get my 88 into smaller pieces. I had to cut the bolts. Way too cruddy for plasma so i busted out the acetylene. Been a while since I used a torch. The frame rail was completely full of rust flakes, amazing.

    Clean roller instead of repair, good choice.

    Unfortunately all too common to see moderate to severe rust in that area. Area forward n aft of K member bolts is a semi sealed box , dirt collects n holds moisture, years go by and no rail left.

    I'm wondering if some prevention is possible, since I have a blank slate with the roller

    Just watch those shitty wheels on the dollies. I’ve see them fold over on themselves when being moved. Would not be fun if the whole thing came crashing down.
