We all know the devastating effects salt can have on metals. We hear about it elsewhere and we go ... yeah well... until you see it for yourself. below is a picture from the seat rail that was mounted in the Endurance Car.
The drivers compartment had quite some salt inside from getting in and out on the salt. Even though this is zinc-plated you can see the corrosion already taking its effect. Needless to say that new ones are orders and will be installed very soon!
