Cleaning subframe.

To strip all the subframe parts is kinda lengthy, and I forgot to take pictures. It is pretty simple: Remove the front wheels. Remove the shocks. Split the tie-rods and unbolt the steering pump and idler arm (entire steering assembly). Remove the sway bar. Chain the coil spring to the lower control arm and split the lower ball joint. Split the upper ball joint. Unbolt upper and lower control arms. Done.


After stripping all subframe components:


After wire-wheel-ing all the rust away:


Degreasing (Marine Clean):


Applying Metal Ready pre-primer (metal prep.):


The Metal Ready pre-primer coating after drying (yuck…):
