Drums redux

As part of the second shakedown test-run I'm building up a new diff with 3.55:1 gears and rebuilding the rear drums. Here are the parts after a thorough wire wheeling. Years of abuse and road grime leave these parts caked with greasy dirty mess.

Freshly sand blasted, solvent washed, prepped, and painted and good as new! I drove the old pinion bearing races out of the diff center and new ones back in after the paint job.

Here are the parts of the drums before a soak in white vinegar or a sand blast, depending on the part.

And those same bits after being cleaned up and painted or restored.

The freshly rebuilt drums with new Firm Feel race shoes. The drums will only be temporary until I decide if I'm sticking with the 15" wheels or going to 18"s. But it was a good exercise to rebuild them, and don't they look great!
