Rad. No rust worries.

Exactly.
The frame is steel but mines in good shape. When I get it back I'm going to get under there with a wire wheel and take off all the surface rust and put some undercoating on and she'll be good as new!

I really wish they had had the forethought to use all stainless fasteners though, all the fasteners are rusted and will have to be replaced.
Everything I have done has been done with stainless so that down the road it will all come out without breaking off

This is true, but only to a point IMO.
A stainless fastener with some antisieze will far outlast a steel fastener even in aluminum. The problem isn't the aluminum corroding it's the steel rusting until it's too brittle to remove.
I could be wrong, but it's served me well so far

It covers the whole top, as well as quite a few on one side  :o
I'm thinking one hell of a hail storm.
Paint guy says it's the worst he's ever seen haha.

Luckily it's on top and no one but me will ever see it. He estimated over 2 grand to fix it, and said really it needs the roof replaced if I want it to be perfect up top.
I said, no thank you, strip it down and paint over em! I don't know anyone 9' tall who is ever going to see it
