Rust on LPG tank/ underbody. XH ute
Picked up my new XH ute (96) last week, I have noticed that the underbady is covered in rust. Its not really bad and flaking, but is pretty thick surface rust. The exhaust is virtually cactus, but the worrying part is the rust on the LPG tank. It's a factory tank installed underneeth at the back, and is covered in relatively thick surface rust. I'll probably replace it next december when it's due for its 10 year inspection, but I'm worried if it's safe to use in the mean time. It hasn't been run on gas for the last 6 months, and the tank is empty.
Also, what is the best way to treat the underbody? I can get plenty of cold-galv (zinc rich primer) from work, so I was just going to wire brush the worst of it and coat it in this.
Any help would be appreciated.....
