Hello, I am a new member and am interested in picking up a 1988 300GD I took a look at and test drove today.
The truck is in excellent mechanical condition, however has about a dozen or so rust spots and bubbles around the body. Should I walk away from this one or is the rust easily dealt with on these trucks?
It is a 1988 300GD originally imported from Spain. It was originally red in color and the previous owner had it repainted about 10 years ago. Didnt notice any major rust problems underneath the truck as it was undercoated with some heavy black epoxy looking material at some point.
Am I being overly critical of the rust bubbles, or should I be more concerned about expensive repair and more rust spreading quickly on this G? Most of the problem areas are around the windows, and edges of the body panels.
