    This is what I was referring too earlier about putting the lines further out the hole. Mandatory if you have a sunroof.

    I sprayed in my rocker panels 2 years ago now. I have not done it since. I have no sun roof though.

    I have no sunroof and still the corner is rotting out.

    ****!...I would leave it and drop some oil down it from time to time. Just a thought.

    I wonder how these aluminum trucks will play out. No rust, reliable with maintenance, people won't want to give them up as easy with the exception of better technology.
    I'm watching, the aluminum bodies on the E450 buses I drive (2010 model) has several pin holes corroded through the sides. Interesting to see if this happens on the F150's.

    No way Aluminum doesn't rust though.....

    Nope it just oxidizes and salt eats it just as quick as steel! Ever seen a set of nice alum rims all pitted and eaten by salt lol.

    I always thought of "rust" as the special case of oxidation of steel or iron. Other metals either oxidized or corroded.

    I think that's what he's saying. No, it doesn't rust, but it still corrodes and ends up in a similar way.

    Baaaaaaaaaaa

    ya, I understood what winchested was saying. Just hear people using rust and corrosion interchangeable.

    has any one thought to scope the rockers and cab corners. Be interesting to see what's there.
