New owner of an 08 Alpha with 34,000 miles

Postby fireftr007 » Sat Jul 12, 2014 2:54 pm

Couple questions...yes it only has 34,000 miles as it was used commercially...looks beautiful in the graphite metallic. Looking underneath though, you can tell the way it has been used...lots of small surface rust on frame and components. I plan to keep it for a while. Anyone have any good ideas on what to use/where to go to stop/slow down the corrosion so it doesn't get too bad? Thought about finding someone to undercoat even though you hear horror stories from time to time. Also...thought about installing the roof lights across the top..anyone added these? Had issues with it? Thanks for the help. Rog

Nice low mileage find! What region are you out of? I've got an '07 with 45,xxx and the winter road salt is caustic as all get out. I've been about as careful as anyone could and I too have a lot of corrosion on the underbody. I don't know of any real way of slowing it. Sorry to be of so little help and Welcome!
