Day 15

Today was quite productive!  I started by dropping off the transaxle at RC Trans to get overhauled.  I'm in no hurry but I also had to get the king/link pin bushings pressed out as well as removing the bearing races in the brake drum.  I picked up the pressed out bushings and races later in the afternoon.  Two birds, one stone!

I also visited the local car wash and traded them $6 for all my old grease!  It was a mess, but I'm glad I got it done.  I came straight home and threw all my clothes in the washer.  Including my shoes!

I thought I got out without being noticed but the attendant realized what I was doing and asked me to spray down the booth after I was done.  But they added free time on, so it was no big deal.  I had to wait anyways for the parts to dry!

I then came home and got all the parts degreased and prepped for the blaster.  Tomorrow I plan on dropping off the pan and miscellaneous parts at the media blaster.

My seam sealer showed up today, the internal frame coating shipped, and the pan paint is on it's way as well.

In the evening, I ran all over doing errands getting parts and pieces for what I'm going to do next week.  Paint brushes, shop vac, solvents, cleaners, wire brushes, and bears oh my!

It's coming together slowly, it's fun to no longer be disassembling as much and at least cleaning.  Next will be building up!
