Well - making progress on the TR6 between working on the MGA (obsentibly the wife's LBC). Time to finish degreading and prep, start paint and then putting her back together.

BUT, before I can do that I have some repair work to do on the wishbone arm bracket;

This side looks ok;

I went with gloss black powdercoating- probably a bit much. Think I'll use semi-glass black next time.

Why????

Those look great and the dirt will wash right off of then when you hit them with a hose.

Hi Paul - they just seem a bit too shiny. I'm used to having dirty/scruffy bits!

This too shall pass..........just give it time and everything else will seem dull and boring.

Simply beautiful-

You really don't need to put ANY paint
inside the bushing openings. Red wheel bearing
grease will offer more rust protection that paint.

Funny how fast things can come apart when they can be soooo slow going back together. :devilgrin:
