Front Axle Cleanup

Perhaps I get carried away sometimes, but I'm always in pursuit of making things the best they can be.

This is crusty! 

Fortunately, this axle just needed to be disassembled, cleaned & painted, and reassembled. After a thorough cleaning, the king pins and bushings are OK. 
 Note the paint break near the leaf spring- this car was already assembled, so that limits what I can do here. These outer axle ends are the most involved so I clean these while I've got the brakes apart for service anyway. 
See the difference? No money in parts here, just two or three hours time on this side.
