    pwder coat springs 001.JPG
    I had intended to have these blasted and powder coated but i went down today and they were still where i left them .
    As you can see by the lower spring they weren't in a bad state so i thought i would just chip off the flaking bits and touch them up .
    10 minutes chipping of the top spring showed the powdercoat has little or no bond with the steel beneath and so it came away like the shell of a boiled egg revealing the rust beneath (it looks better in pics than it does to the naked eye) so i'm glad the blasting and powdercoating got cancelled .

    Mine are 11 years on the truck now, and they're about 50/50 rust/paint.

    They work fine, so I'm not too bothered. I might just oil them as time goes on, it acts as a rust retarder, if nothing else, like on the chassis.

    Actually I didn't do the chassis last summer, nor this one yet, and it's looking a bit crusty again, especially on the welds. There's still original paint on the main members though, so it's not too bad for a 22-year old.

    Note to self - don't put your 12v battery charger on top of the cardboard box in the kitchen because it might empty 2 full cans of stonechip shield spray that had been left in the box without the lids on :doh:

    Oooops! This often happens to the WD40 can in the back of mine when I'm carrying something on top of my tools and other stuff. Suddenly there's a hissing while driving along and after mad panics wondering if the AC has sprung a leak or a tyre is rapidly deflating my nose tells me it's the WD. Cue rapid stop and race round the back. :)

    I think Helen could do with some of the same mate , imagine waiting until i had rewired the tow socket , fog light and refitted the bumper before complaining about stuff left on the windowsill at the kitchen sink :icon-rolleyes:

    So if you would be kind enough to sort her out i would be much obliged :whistle:
