Default Re: Type 3 VolksRod

Spent a bit more time with the Sled the last couple of days. Got the axle nuts loose using one of the beat-on axle nut tools.



Took some doing, but I was surprised they came loose. Let me get the backing plates off and sand blasted. Even got a coat of paint on them today...but forgot to take a picture. First "finished" part on the car. <G>

I also spent some time smoothing out some high spots and over-stretched areas with my shrinking disk and new 7-1/2" grinder. Both the disk and the new grinder work good. Hard to tell from the pictures, but there is quite a bit of metal moving around.





More tomorrow......
