I sprayed another coat of primer on the front suspension crossmembers. Now I can sand them down to 400 grit (dry) and spray the single stage satin black on them.
I started cleaning the power steering rack, I'm going to try to paint it black next week also.
In January 2012, I removed the front crossmember bushings.
The supplies: The old bushings, some 316 stainless washers, some 303 stainless rod, and Turner's tea.
A bit of lathe work
My swaging tool
Swaged in place. After I assemble the rubber through the crossmember, I can swage the 2nd washer on the other side. This will capture the bushing assembly, then it gets clamped permanently by a bolt.
Two done, two to go.
