Yeah, but Timken, the best! Ought to last forever with some regular TLC.
Have the old hub assembly almost painted. A coat of rust reformer everywhere and then a coat of undercoating on the part of the hub that won’t be seen. Still trying to decide if the part of the hub that will be seen should be a black or chrome finish.
I also worked on the spare tire bracket. Got it cleaned up and a coat of the rust reformer on it, cuz everything needs a coat of rust reformer on a 52 year old steel rust bucket!
Nice work - they look new!
Thank you! I think they look like a million bucks compared to what they were.
They see me rollin', they hatin'! Well I have one wheel hub finished. Couldn't get the new seal to work, so I had to put the old one back in. But, the bearings are thoroughly goupped and packed!
Wow, great job all around. Just finished reading the whole thread.
Wow! Incredible work, love to see a classic restored!
Sweet work so far.
Do you have access to a sandblaster? You can take the rust off just about anything with a sandblaster.
If your through with your camper, I have a 57 Chevy I would like you to restore. Very Impressive,love it
I don’t, but I pretty much have tackled all the rust on this thing! Orbital sander, wire brushes, stainless steel, scrapers, and elbow grease!
Oh, I already keep an eye out for my own projects! It would be fun to have a classic car/truck one day. good luck on yours.
Nice work and attention to detail!
Only thing I would be weary of is reusing the old seal.
For some stuff , evapor rust does a great job. Non toxic and reusable. Not for heavy rust , but good for soaking of small parts.
Ah, yup. I was given a fireplace insert that had a coating of light surface rust. I bought a large wire wheel and put it on a heavy-duty drill. Had the thing ready to paint in an hour.
Well, once I get the other hub and wheel bearings done, Henry will be safe to tow! I had a welder come and replace a piece on the tongue that had rusted out. I also had the jack replaced with one that has a wheel for better mobility. We had to re-position the shelf for the propane tank to get it all to work, but we did it!
Looks too good, your scarring me now. Real nice. Factory.
Looks great! I guess the interior is next up?
Well I can’t take much credit for this work, except to say that I paid a welder to do it!
