My '68 Square lived in the salt and snow of Wisconsin for most of the 10 
years that I owned it. When I sold it, it had rust in the fenders and in the 
wheel wells but the pan was still fine.

If the FI brain is not installed correctly, that will lead to a water leak back 
there, which will slowly rust out the rear deck. If the front air vent drains are 
left clogged, rain will end up on the front floor, slowly rusting out the 
passenger compartment floor.

Paying attention to water leaks is a huge key to survival.
