Rear End Preperations

Before I mount the rear end and suspension and tack weld the leaf spring mounts in place I disassembled the rear by pulling out the axles (with help from a slide hammer, and pulled out the pumpkin, drained some very black lube and ground down the old welds that were part of the old spring mounts in the 1960 oldsmobile from which it came.

Now that the rear housing is stripped down I will have it sandblasted, primed and I will paint the housing flat black and mask off the areas where the new leaf spring pad, ladder bars and new disk brake caliber mounts will be welded on and apply weld through primer and tack the mounts in place
