Hi everyone, I've finally decided to focus specifically on finding a reasonably clean Hako while I'm here in Japan. I've gone through most of the threads here to see what other owners have run into (and for the great pictures of course). Unfortunately, most of my research in the past has been for the S30 and I'm at a bit of a loss for information regarding the C10 Skylines.
I was curious if there are any areas I should know of where these cars typically rust out that aren't obvious from a quick external check? The 5 or 6 that I've looked at so far have all had pretty different issues. Any pointers on peculiar aspects of the car that may act up would be greatly appreciated as well.
Here are the areas I'm aware of:
1. Side covers in the engine bay.
2. Floor box.
3. Rocker panels.
4. Bottom of the front and rear fenders between the wheels.
5. Bottom edge of the doors.
