Quick release and easily replaceable....

Either that or getting confused with an RS200..

And as if to prove that the mono bodies can promote corrosion, see the dirt trap between chassis B post and rear clam/arch. 20 years of dirty water and stones :shock:
It's not just a mono-body problem - my SS1 had a large lump of silt in the B-post bottom (on both LHS and RHS). I suspect that's why it's a bit of a rot spot, especially on a non-galv one.
