Welcome to the asylum... as for paint peeling, I can see some spots, it looks not too bad until the clear coat starts to bubble.

The most important part is to make sure that the roof rack wellnuts are still doing their job, to keep the rain from dripping on the headliner which is cardboard and may take a few soaks before the headliner starts to drool...

The luggage sliding chrome pieces are also fitted with sheet metal screw and some rubber bits and it is plain cheap job, rust appears around the screw holes and get bigger.

or bjs

As for the fuel, make sure that the fuel filter is postioned with the return hose at the 12 o'clock position, this is the top placement for the return line which is 1/4". You may find out that the fuel pump is getting weak... or other issues... when spring is around the corner, but this is for another story.
74 wag, 349Kmiles on original ticker/trany, except for the rust. Will it make it to the next get together without a rebuilt? Status: needs a new body.
85 Gwag, 226 Kmiles. $250 FSJ test lab since 02, that refuses to give up but still leaks.
