    I started scrubbing with detergent and a soft brush then used a wire wheel on an angle grinder when I got lazy. I wiped it all down with TSP before paint.
    It seems to stick and spray great , no skill involved!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] The rearend is in place. It’s a quick performance 9” housing with 35 spline axles , strange aluminum center with spool. It’s resting on Calvert split monos with Afco big gun double adjustable shocks.

    I got a screaming deal on a fresh ATI , Reid cased power glide. I sold the used 8” converter and got a PTC 9.5” 15-0 and SFI flex plate 3EBB2C77-758E-42CD-A414-33124FB8780A.jpeg 3EBB2C77-758E-42CD-A414-33124FB8780A.jpeg 1EEDF37D-EE6E-4306-A251-EA5ABE0A23FD.jpeg
