Its not quite as bad as salt but still makes a mess. Best to get your car Krown treated or at least spray the insides of the door drains with Fluid Film or the likes. We don't have the "Eastern Rust" here by any means, but it sure ain't Az.

Some things are better left unsaid, which I generally realize right after I have said them.

I did finally uncover it and start it up again two weeks ago! Took a while to get fuel up to the carb, lol. Fired it up again yesterday for the first time since, it was much happier the second time. Still haven't moved it yet, haha.
