Paint, round 3
They flash cured pretty quick because the painting conditions were ideal (77ºF, 48% humidity). I'll get the excess paint off of the inside bearing areas later next week before I attempt to assemble the pieces.
The plan is to clean each of the four torsion arms before moving to the center axle beam part and attempt to assemble it without doing too much damage to the paint. I'm looking forward to getting this off the table and moving on to the door situation so that I can have functional windows again. Once that's resolved - I'll work on getting the engine tuned a bit better and running more smoothly. I'm going to hold off on the rear torsion re-indexing until I've fixed the rest of the things on the car. I think it's prudent to fix what I know before tackling things that may devolve into another rabbit hole (like fixing the wipers or having another go at 4 way flashers).
