Welcome! Looks like you're doing a great job. I have an 02 International and my miles are a little more than 9,000. I can't remember the exact figure. So I'm sure it's probably 7,200. I have the same rust issues in about the same areas. I live in NY. I have a friend who's going to repair mine if i don't go ahead and teach myself.
Good luck and I look forward to watching your progress
Oh duh... this was back in June!
