The pics on page 36 show the painted washers, bushings, shafts etc but also show the bolts and nuts holding the a arm to the frame painted black. Looks to me like someone had done some later painting. This is the first time I have heard that those parts were painted as a assembly.
I overlooked that. I saw no overspray on the fuel line and assumed it was untouched. I generally never take anyone's word for anything unless I verify it with numerous sources and reference. The detail with Chick's build led to my error of assumption. I've never painted all those components black. That thread had me questioning my procedure.
