There is an astonishing variance in the assessments being made!

Can we have a clearer picture please?

Okay, let me clear the confusion. As Muneem said, there is fine rust all over the body. But that is curable. Notice my statement which said "the rust is not as bad as the first signs showed". we were expecting corrosion all over the place like on the roof, but it is present only in some places like the fender etc. The rest has this fine rust. The good news was that it was not as bad as expected, and we that we don't need to hunt for a new shell.

The ONE part that never needed replacement on our Landmasters in about 30 years of ownership!
Water/water vapour never stay there. You'll never find bad rust there!
