I replaced gas tank, fuel lines, brk lines, you name it. Nothing came loose very easy, and there is still alot that could be replaced but he run out of money.
We did put this one on a lift and the undercarriage didn't seem to be an issue at all it was just dirty and gunky with black slime but as far as rust went i only saw the mufflers were rusty and the bolts looked to be the same.
