first step - Wheels





Next are the rust spots. Anyone ever have experience with the rust or whatever is causing the streak under my driver side mirror?

Cladding later this week!

Installed a new Tom Woods front drive shaft. Took apart the old one, it was in pretty good shape, but does need a new u joint. If anyone in the area needs a front drive shaft, PM me if you want to make an offer.

Nice wheels, I did the same to mine a while back. I found the Rust-o-leum hammered has really held up well on my wheels. Looking good.

Did you put new rubber O-rings where the pipes fit to the compressor? This can cause gas to leak when engaged, and may not be an issue when not engaed as it isn't under any severe pressure!

I inspected the o rings and didn't notice any cracking or indications that would have alerted me to replace them. I also replaced the bolts that secure the hoses since the old onces were rusted and oxidized. Thanks for the reply. I'm considering pulling the hoses and replacing the o-rings, wouldn't hurt...

I replaced my ignition lock cylinder with one I bought on eBay for $16.50 new. Then I returned the exact same cylinder to AA for a $64.00 refund. Call me cheap.

How do you clean the wheels? I don't want to hurt the paint with a brush.
