Hello. I'm finalizing my purchase of a 2006 IC CE. The bus served the past 13-years in Connecticut with snow and salt. Body itself looks great -- no rust on any of the yellow; no rust on the wheel wells; and no rust on the stairs or on the seats. But there is rust on the frame and the back bumper. Taking advice from other posts, I don't think I saw any flaking on the metal itself (although the paint is flaking off). The bumper is sketchy from a flaking perspective, but I'm not as concerned with the bumper as I am with the frame. I'm hoping to get some feedback on the amount of rust from the following 2 photos:
Frame (between back tires and back of bus):
(I left the photos big for the sake of being able to zoom in)
Aside from the body, the tires are only a year old and look great, and maintenance seemed to be kept up with. At a 107,000 miles, I'm looking at $4000.
Thanks for any input!
