Thanks, all! I let him know it's not an issue and passed on the Rust-o-leum advice for if he buys it. Makes sense that the anti-corrosion coating would have a harder time in the corners by the welds.

Report from the dealer... 873.23 hours. That means the last time it hit the rev limiter was about 5 hours ago. I had a feeling... a young guy came out to test drive it a little while back, and...
