Not much done today. Just painted the shafts.


.


Decided on this color for the whole axle. Blingin!



Also decided I'm going to truss the **** out of the axle! I figured while I'm doing it I might as well do it all the way. I want to be able to beat the crap out of it and not worry. Plus, it will look cool! :-)

Oh yeah forgot that the e brake cable mounts to em. I've never had an e brake on any of my jeeps ha. Then again almost all have been auto's which don't really require one lol.

So, i was sitting here....broke....thinkin.... And what do you think about when you don't have money? You think about stuff you need to buy. One of the things I need to buy is new calipers for the 8.8, or so I thought.

The calipers that came with the axle looked pretty bad but I decided to test them.

Pretty nasty



Used my friends little air compressor



Shot some air into the brake fluid hole. (fluid that was in there before was clean, no rust)


.


And boom! They popped open easy peasy.



They closed fine too. So, I think I'm going to clean then up and reuse them. Any objections?

I did that on my front 44. They worked, but worked like ****. You may have better luck though. Id say try it, the worst that can happen is that they don't work well

If it were the front brakes I'd be alot more hesitant, but the fact that they receive maybe a third of your braking power, I say go for it

Uhg, I take this back. Priced some steel out and after I buy everything else it will just be too much with having to save for moving and all.... :-(

Got one caliper cleaned and painted.

Street racer style! :-)

.


Used high temp engine paint. Figured it would be a safe choice since I don't know how hot the calipers get during braking.



I will be able to save one rotor but the other is completely shot.

With much cleaning



Shot

Get out the flapper disc. That should clean it up better than the wire wheel
