Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you have any insight into exactly what will and won't pass the MA safety inspection when it comes to rust?
I recently got my '77 F250 running and am working on the tires right now, after that I'm just gonna do a good tune up, change all the fluids and it'll be time to see what it'll need to pass. I do have holes in the floor behind the seat so I know that'll have to be done but the entire cab is pretty rusty. Frame is fine. Anyone know any inspection shops with "bad vision"?
Pretty much any hole into the passenger compartment gets flagged, although I've never seen anyone actually crawl under the truck. Not sure about the rust over the wheel wells - I'll find that out tonight, actually.
i filled my wheel wells with great stuff, scraped of the high spots and painted it a bit. just taped carboard over the holes and stuck the tube behind the tape and in between carboard making sure to fill enough to make a large brick between inner and outers. also large voids in front lower fenders and a few lower rear spots rebuilt with same substance.. passed safety no probs 5 bucks or so. leave cardboard on for at least 3 days so it cures well and compact, makes it harder.
I need a new power brake booster to get rid of the hiss in the cab causing it to run lean.. wish i had a 95 sometimes, no emissions then. 1 frekin year
