Just a quick question about salt and corrosion... I live 2 blocks from the beach in central Florida. Just purchased my, new to me, used unit. I wash and polish the outside any chance I get. What can I do to the rest of it and particularly the chassis to prevent corrosion? Is it an uphill battle? Will salt win?

Spray the entire chassis with "undercoat".

THat provides a barrier to the salt.
