Note that only the welds are truly corroding. Looks as if the pipes themselves are stainless, but the rod used to join them wasn't.

it's just surface rust. not like it'll rust thru anytime soon. after putting mine up on the rack after purchasing it one week and driving thru a snowstorm it was all spotted with surface rust. mine doesn't look *that* bad tho...and chicago uses nothing but salt in the winter

that pic was taken on Jan 21, less than 18hrs after picking the vehicle up, and one month after the vehicle was delivered to the dealership.

All of the white splotchy crap on everything is the salt that was picked up on my way to work that morning (~33 miles).

btw, sorry about the huge pics, but I'm lazy so you get to see exactly what came out of the digicam.

I'm an engineer working for a Tier 1 automotive supplier. I was currious as to what was underneath my car, and the easiest way to do that is put it up in the air. :)
