    My 92 k1500 is so rusted one of the gas tank straps broke loose. When I went to look at it, the slot where the strap hooks into the frame is all rusted away. I had to put a new strap on, drill a hole through it, put some heavy wire through the strap and wrap it around the frame to hold it up. Looks like this ol truck is gonna be headed for the junk yard with the way it's rusting out. Anybody ever have an issue like this?

    Yes. Won't pass DOT inspection, ship it. It's done.
