Shock cleanup

The rear shock has been sitting on my work bench looking at me all nasty like.  So I finally cleaned it up.  I sprayed it down with the hose and then hit it with a scrub brush.  The dirt and grime were resilient, so I had to soak it with some wheel and brake cleaner and then scrub it again.

It looks a lot better.  The chrome bits have some cracking and unfortunately the spring has some rust and missing paint.  Looks like I'll need to figure out how to disassemble this thing in order to restore it back to its former glory.  That, or find a deal on a new one.  Also, when it comes to replicating four "before" and "after" shots like this, its better to be lucky than good.

  1. You'll need a paint booth whether you're painting small, medium, or huge automobiles or aeroplanes, furniture, ceramics, and other large equipment. When compared to painting in broad open areas, it has various benefits. For example, in the case of automobile painting, quick baking of the paint is necessary to guarantee that the paint is dried, making it more resistant to wear and tear. Using commercially available booths or spray booths, this curing and baking may be accomplished. A clean and efficient painting job will save you money, time, and effort. Moreover, you can be confident that your consumers will get the most effective available painting services. Visit the Eptex coatings website right now to place an order for a paint booth.
