micar71 is on a distinguished road

I agree with you RAMINATOR. From '94 - '97, I was station in Norfolk, Va. Salty air, road salt, hurricanes, & snow. One can of Rustolium flat black on dry metal sealed out all water and air. I sold that truck in 2005, with no rust visible where I had used one can of paint 10 years earlier. Also, I read an article and my Lockeed Martin machinist father in law told me the same thing and that is when installing after market parts that require the use of bolts and nuts, try to avoid carbonized steel nuts and bolts unless they will be touching other carbonized metals. I cannot remember exactly which metal is was (hopefully someone will pipe-in with the answer) but carbonized metals are caustic to other metals as long as they are in contact. If someone knows the answer please jump in.
