Thoughts on R34 front Turret rust?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at an R34, and am wondering what you guys think about this strut tower rust.  Is this a go or a no-go?  Note I live in the desert, so this car is unlikely to see much more water or snow any time soon.  Cheers fellas!

Looks relatively trivial. Deal to it properly and it shouldn't come back.

I was going to say..... "There's rust in those photos?"

Nothing there. Buy it, assuming there's nothing else wrong with the car.

The trouble is that the rust starts between the panels where it isn't easy to actually see it. I think this one is fine, especially if it's living in the desert. But it's going to take a lot of work to actually prevent the strut rust from advancing in a place like Canada. So many R33s from Canada have pretty severe rust issues right now.

Think the main issue with these cars where lack of paint supplied by nissan. Clean it, protect it, it will last longer!

Areas where only a dusting of primer exists, door posts, inner front wheel arches, rear panel, inner part of door, inner wings, boot floor, and alot more.

Primer isnt paint! Get em painted.
