Hi Dereck,  I have seen many MGB's (not GT though). The rust areas you describe 
are just the tip of the iceberg. I'd suggest unless you really like welding and 
body work wait for a better $2000 GT.

It sounds too expensive for a rusty car.  If it has rust that visible then 
the stuff you cant see is probably worse.  My opinion is let it go for that 
price.  I have seen nice rust free GTs go for $1700.
