Photos 240 - 243 - Cable after cleaning.  BTW the wet look on the cable is the RPM that hasn't dried yet.

Last thing for today was to get the kick panels cleaned up and ready to be installed once the time comes.

Photos 252 - 254 - Calipers after cleaning.  I did have to buy new pad pins as the originals were MIA as noted in previous photo as someone had installed a nail in place of one of them in the cars past.  I will have to send these out as 2 of the 8 bores are pitted so stainless sleeves will be needed.  Note black paint still present on the rears of the calipers.

Although the weather down here in TN wasn’t the best to hang out in the garage for long periods of time I was able to get a couple more items marked off the list.


Photo 281 - Driveshaft after cleaning but before soaking in evaporust.

Photo 282 - 283 - Yoke after removing from shaft.

Photo 284 - Broke out the pvc pipe to soak the shaft while the yoke was soaked in a smaller container as well as the original u joint.
