Day off work = a day working on PROJECT-S :-)

Holiday today so time to get some work done on PROJECT-S...

Powder coating would have been the preferred finish but I would have had to remove the drive shaft to do so. Since the drive shaft is in good condition and does not need any servicing I decided to leave it alone and rattle can the swing arm instead.

It would have been easier to just sent the swing arm out the be "media" blasted, but I was concerned with the residual sand/beads that would be left in my drive shaft and swing arm bearing races. So I choose to wire wheel the swing arm myself. No to hard, only took about and hour using a combination of 6" bench, 4.5" hand and a variety of wire wheels on my die grinder.

Swing arm looked so good after stripping it seems a shame to cover it up with paint.

A quick coat of zinc chromate primer, let her sit overnight, and she'll be ready for several coats of Krylon Satin Black.
