Back to work on rear bushings.

Here's what the factory original bushing in the rear axle housing looked like.
And the bushing in the front of the upper control arm. I don't know what the text means (INLAND M-10-65) - is it possible that this bushing was 4 years old when it was installed?
I scraped and scraped and scraped all the years of road-grime off the arm, then took a toothbrush and Gojo hand cleaner to it. It came out pretty good; I need to either sandblast it tomorrow, epoxy prime, and paint with regular paint; or just coat it with POR. Not sure which route I'll take.

It rained last night, and only a small amount of water got in the car. This is a great improvement over how it has been in the past; I think I still have some leaves, etc in the pass cowl, and I haven't done anything about the rustholes at the back window yet. (Swapmeet next weekend, should be a POR rep there to get putty from)

Carpet isn't dry yet. Maybe tomorrow.

Go back to the previous day (3 Apr 03)
Go on to the next day (5 Apr 03)
