Yeah good luck
I dunno if you ever really beat rust
Maybe we just slow it down a bit LOL

Welcome to the forum, There a plenty of people with knowlege on 3C machines, when you say rust i take it is mainly in the cab as they were paticularly bad, There was a company up country that were manufacturing new cabs but i am not sure if they are still oing them now, good luck and we love to see pictures of older machines on this forum.
