Re: Had my little putter for a year now...
Yes, I understand humidity problems. I once lived on the beach.
Salt air destroys everything.
If your chinagirl has been out, exposed to the salt fog, for an extended period, without constant maintenance, I would agree... there is a good chance it may not be worth repairing.
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
