I can imagine identifying rust in the paint is harder in a Black or Red Roxor, but its easy to see in a white Roxor. I removed the 8 posterior box tie down latches permenantly because 1 one was visibly rusting around the paint. The other 7 were also rusting but not visible without removing them. Now yesterday I saw rusting around the hood hinge screws into the paint. I wasnt expecting these two spots to be rusting the paint, i was expecting the CJ-7 winshield hinges to be the most likely culprit. I saw a video on a Jeep guy recommending a removable sealant in between metal parts have minimal spacing that could hold moisture to prevent the rusting process. Any thoughts? anyone with rusting in the hood hinge or or box latches? I found this removable seal, it might put it between the screws and the paint and between CJ-7 hinges and paint.
