Thanks for the link. I did not see any metal to fix a rotten undercarriage.
Seems most have the two main frame members totally rusted away from the front bumper horns to the rear cross member.

You must be looking at different ones that the ones that are popping up on here. I have seen a couple with the main rails rotted but most of them it is the outer rails and the cross members that are gone. If the main rails are gone then it is probably a good idea to look for a different mutt anyway.

Ok, We are wandering from the original root of the thread and I sort of want to keep this one on track.

Even though they don't post much, I see we get new members on a regular basis.

Yes, I have gotten the registration mostly under control as far as the spammers. They are still getting in but have not caused too much issue......................... yet. We are getting new members so that is good.
