I actually do have it on a rotisserie, and I love the idea of getting a rust converter in there. You had my hope up! Then towards the end of your post you're suggesting the skin replacement again! Darn it.

I should probably just bite the bullet and replace the skin, so I have peace of mind and nothing to worry about.

Here's another problem with replacing the skin: the a-pillars are part of it but they're not part of the replacement repop skins. This means you have a weld seam on the apillar where you marry the new roof skin to the old apillar skin!! Since this seam has apillar structure behind it you can not dress the weld. This is also another big hold up for me because I see these as being vulnerable to rust too.
