The quality of some aftermarket parts leaves a lot to be desired.

You call that rust?? Seriously though, since the seam wasn't fully welded, it is very difficult to get paint or even powdercoat to seal the surfaces where the 2 parts meet. The simple solution is to just spray the assembly with oil or fluidfilm as it will soak into the joints and prevent further rusting.

Instead of posting negative things here about this product why not call the company ?
From the little I have had to deal with these people they have been nothing but great.
Actually I probably wouldn't worry about such a small thing but if it did bother me I would call them instead of posting here. My 2 cents

I was gonna say something similar. Naked metal will show surface rust overnight. Hit it with something and shoot some paint on it. No big deal.

I don't mean to give you a hard time about this ZB. I know when you buy something new that's what you expect. New.

But, the next time you go to Lowes or Home Depot, look closely at the riding mowers, trailers etc. You will see little spots like that on most everything.

I'd have to agree. The times I've called them or dealt with them, theyve been nothing but courteous, professional, and gone above and beyond to help.

You’re right. I will spray it to slow down rust. They are a great company and don’t deserve any negativity. I apologize.

Use spray on Rusteolum paint....in black. That stuff clings on and prevents rust for....well maybe.....thousands of years.
