Front beam cleaning and evaluation
I got a pretty good start on the paint removal process - the wire wheel gave up the ghost and I didn't have a replacement. I'll have to pick one up either tonight or tomorrow to do the bulk of what's left before I move on to other means of paint removal. I will prep and then, hopefully, on Thursday, paint the parts with the POR 15.
Once I can determine that the beam is good to go, I'll clean off some of the welding splatter and then paint it.
I reached out to Mario at T3HQ and he was able to find the right size in his stock and get them to DHL so that they'll arrive before I need them.
Quite a difference.
Again, replacing them with NOS parts to make sure everything is snug and as nice as I can make it.
The steering box went back to Tim for evaluation. It had about 100 miles on it and it was one of his first rebuilds - he's going to check it over and let me know what is going on/gone wrong. I'll decide what to do with it once he's finished his evaluation.
