    There are a few body panels that are a little more expensive to get than others just do to them not having been made in a while. Aftermarket support though is plentiful and if you have any fabrication skills there a ton of routes you could take a build. I say go for it.

    Totally fine around town and actually pretty peppy for what it is. I personally wish I would have went with 5.14 gears as I the engine has the power to provide me with a few more mph but I’m running out of rpm if I need to make and interstate jump for a few exits. I never tested out the “top speed” but at around 32-3500rpm it is mid 50s mph.

    Defiantly look under the battery box and in the inner fenders toward the outer lip. Another major place for prominent rust is the rocker panels, if it still has the factory rocker covers they can be slid up slightly and you should be able to lean them back and see if there is any rust.

    you will not find a samurai without rust for 2500, you are dreaming if you think you will. unless someones done a full resto job and removed all the rust then any samurai is going to have rust somewhere they are old cars made with metal from a tuna can, just accept it and buy one anyways. look at the passenger and driver floor pans they like to rust out . look around the arches they rust there to.
