    Rear drive line cleaned up time for paint! Amazing what they look like after some good old fashioned elbow grease.

    Looks Like someone was thinking, Dana maybe! Anyway if you need to take the slip yoke off, clean it up and look for an arrow so you can align it properly and maybe save you a balance later.

    On to body parts, dug the radiator support out of the barn! Little clean up since the weather finally broke. The only fastener I had to cut off during removal, didn't want to be removed so I had to drill it out.
