f00bar A little off topic, but kinda relevant. Back in the early 80s we used to see edges start to rust after a 3-4hr road trip with them on the roof. This was before the big salt is bad ban. We used to have this kinda roll on glue they sold for your edges. Went on almost like a nail polish, wore off on the first run.

The problem kinda went away when salt became bad to use on most roads. Now though they are using that liquid pre storm stuff which seems super corrosive. At least that's what they are blaming control arms and brake hoses going bad seemingly earlier than expected now. So do you think this becomes an issue again?

Lol fair enough! Honestly I don't do much to my boards other than ride them. Put them away in the summer and hang them up so they don't sit somewhere moist, other than that just wax/sharpen at the beginning of the season and ride the shit out of them!

Honestly it's a cheaper board, likely with lower quality steel edges, it's going to rust a little more between uses. Is it going to affect anything? Not unless you leave the thing in your basement covered with moisture. Then the edge might rust enough to start causing issues. Otherwise it's just cosmetic.
