Aluminum sides, steel frame, no insulative (non conductive) protection between two equals galvanic corrosion

Now the mfg are trying composite (Azdel) instead of luan. We shall see how it all works out long term.

Still haven't made a decision

Now that Spring is finally here, we are going to bring the '94 home this weekend, and with BOTH of them in the driveway, decide which one to keep...or sell...or sell both. We love the '94 since it's bigger, has overdrive, etc... and we love the woodwork and detail in the '88 - it seems more solid and better built too, I don't know...just worried that the corrosion will continue with the '94. *sigh*

(Pat is an auto body guy, so he is very good with repairs, just don't want to put a band-aid on a bullet hole)

lets see ; its paid for , it runs reliably and everything works. Hmmm seems cosmetics is the only concern on either one. If the looks dont bother you just use it until its no longer desirable.

With Pat being an auto body guy, he can patch it once per year for many years and keep it looking good. Unfortunately, I do believe it will continue to have corrosion. The price was right, however.

I almost bought one like this years ago until I took it to a repair shop that was familiar with the problem and got an estimate of $7,000 to reskin/paint just one side. The shop explained that the aluminum is very thin, and is shipped to them rolled up inside a mailing tube.

Keep the one you like the best.
