Sorry Gav?, missed your post, thanks for taking the time to look through it all, and glad you found it interesting, I'm just doing the things I like to do, and kinda hoping other people feel the same way and don't think I've lost the plot.as if i just sat and read the whole thread for 2 hours!!! lol very interesting read fella
Thanks brett, you really need to get some pics up of yours mate, your car that is, :chuckle:Not bland mate. Love it. I stripped mine a few years ago & cleaned them up while I changed the bearings.
They are nice to still see looking clean after a few years.
I thought pretty much the same thing when I got them out in the daylight, I showed them to my brother, he suggested I paint them as you can't tell the difference between them being painted or cleaned, he clearly misses the point, or at least I think he does.What a difference - any cleaner and they'd have been polished
Thank you so much, I love the fact that people are still finding this thread for the first time, and more importantly, liking it, keep checking back has I'm hoping this year will be a bit more productive than the last one.I'M SPEECHLESS!!!
Ive not been on the forum for a while for several reasons...and then stumble upon this thread....this is hands down the BEST thread ever!!
Well done Kev, well done...we salute you!
Cheers bud, maybe I could do that with the spare set I have, the only down side to it is I have to have all my alloy parts cleaned the same way, other wise it will look like I couldn't be bothered.Kev, Jesus dude, glass box on the mantel, much!? They look awesome!
Hi Mark,Good to see your getting back into your project, as your stripping the drive shafts, is they anyway of knowing what side they came off as in drivers side or passenger ? Are they marked up anywhere on the shaft. Have been told there made with a slight twist in the shaft for acceleration to take the stress out of the shaft
The guy that did the blasting suggested I try something called ACF50, I think it's a bit like WD40 and is supposed to be excellent at preventing aluminium from corroding, a spray and forget thing, a little easier than lacquering them, and I'm up for anything to make things a little easier.Maybe consider clear coating them to preserve the actual effort undertaken?
Thanks Rich,Looking Good Kev-lar.
Impressed with the results from your cheap blasting gun, I might have to get one myself.
Keep up the good work.
Nice to here from you bud, wondered if you were OK when you just disappeared, did you get shipped out or something?Kev, I'm glad to see more on this one. I've been away for a bit, but I always love checking in on your thread here. The only thing that I don't understand is why in the hell it says "Kind of" in your title... there is not even a shred of "kind of" in the effort you're putting into this man. Absolutely unbelievable! Well done!
Thank you, I know I have issues, but I'm working through them :chuckle:Stunning work mate :bowdown1:
