Re: How much rust is too much?
I prefer coated S/S and have found that putting heat shrink tube over the joint between the coating and the swage fitting will extend the life of the lines dramatically. As long as the coating remains unbroken the wire stays dry.
Wiping them down regularly with Armor-All or similar and removing them during the off season helps a lot as well.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
