I just got these from E-bay yesterday and noticed this brown stain on the inside. This is the top belt guard and the front of the guard is perfect and this brown stain will not be seen but I am wondering if this will spread and cause the chrome to start flaking off. Any Chrome experts or someone who has seen similar know if this is something I should bring up to the seller now or is it no big deal? Thanks ???

It has been my experience that once rust has started on chrome it doesn't stop and eventually spreads like wild fire, until you sandblast and re-chrome.

Your experience has served you well. This is true. Oxidation occurs below the surface of metals... what you see is only the tip of the iceberg.
