  1. First of all I am sorry if this is not the right place to post this, but I am still trying to learn how to navigate this forum. My family has always been a pathfinder family. My parents have r51's but we still have a 2001 r50, which my parents said they would be willing to give to me if I was willing to put the time and money into fixing it up. It has 160k miles on it, which is high, but the pathy does not seem to be even close to the end of her life. The frame is in quite good condition, according to a mechanic my dad asked, so that is a relief. I am not very car savy myself, but I am working on that and hope that restoring this pathy will be a good learning experience. My first question is about body rust... I live in NY so the roads are basically paved with salt in the winter, and as a result the body has quite a bit of rust. The wheel wells and the area above the running boards are rusting. (I will add pictures later) so my question - is there a simple way to fix this rust? or even a way to just cover it up? I see in some of the pictures people have what looks like a 5inch plastic border around the base of their truck that runs above the running board. Is this something you can purchase? because that would be perfect to just cover up the rust after I grind it down. Also, I have been looking every where for some beefy fender flares that would hide the rust on the wheel wells, so if anyone knows where to find those I would greatly appreciate it. Pictures and more questions will be coming soon! thanks!
