Re: The "Retired" 510

That would be cool, but aren't you working nights? Living in Newberg, I'm actually close to some of my friends again. On that note, at least three of them work with you. Lol I'm seriously considering replacing the windshield when I pull it out this time. Just so much pitting, haze, chips, and genera...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Finished the wheel well undercoating. Started a year ago, but its much easier with no wheels/struts in the way. Sanded the paint and surface rust off the frame rails first of course. https://s13.postimg.org/46t749zsn/20180222_191156.jpg https://s13.postimg.org/4wbzgnfrr/20180222_191211.jpg https://s...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Just got home from surgery on the elbow and wrist. Hand is numb as hell, but atleast that's the worst of it, for now. I did get myself some blocks and rolls of sandpaper for when I can use both hands again. Might be a couple weeks though... https://s18.postimg.org/72pfy4bq1/20180208_161328.jpg

Re: The "Retired" 510

Little by little this is getting straightened out. That big crack scares me, needs to be welded. Here's where it started. Not horrible, but still no fun. I'm guessing something was hit low to the ground and at low speed. No upper frame rail distortion, just a bit of crumpling down low. https://s13.p...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Been masking and sanding with other random in between. Mounted the tire with the drum, fit is looking good. I'll be able to dial the camber out when I get this new properly slotted crossmember. Thing is, it's all the way up in Seattle, working on figuring out pickup/delivery. https://s13.postimg.org...

And I went with everything from McMaster Carr. The price nowadays comes out to about $53 with the hardware.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Just imagine the spring seat staying in the same spot, but the threaded tube moving down. Kinda tripped me up for a second yesterday also. I did move the collar down an inch yesterday. I'm going to use the 5mm wheel spacer for peace of mind. Don't want the tire rubbing the strut like Jacob pointed o...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Had to use a 5mm spacer to get this clearance. I might raise that collar up the strut tube an inch so I don't have to use the spacer, unless the tire will get in the way regardless. I'll mount a wheel with tire tomorrow to see how it does. https://s13.postimg.org/x791q5j87/20180131_234731.jpg

Yay, the rear crossmember ears are slotted in a way that makes the toe adjustable on both mounting points. Fail.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Thanks!^^^ Aside from being made from lighter aluminum, that aluminum also has better heat dissipation properties and with the fins that's only helped. Just had to look it up again, thermal conductivity is what it's called. And the fins look cooler of course :) Not that there's much of a show throug...

Re: The "Retired" 510

These are about half the weight of the 510 drums. The headache is mostly my own fault. I should have just spent the money on a new set when I started this brake job, then I'd already be done. Lol

Re: The "Retired" 510

Huh, I didn't believe you so I stuck a magnet to the contact surface. It sure is an iron liner. Hmmm, they can take 1/2 credit for the idiocy. Lol Doesn't help that they're out of spec. Then again, they might not know what they're talking about there either. I think I'll make another trip to the par...

Re: The "Retired" 510

So I learned it's hard to find anyone to turn these aluminum brake drums. Well, not hard, but the regular parts houses won't touch the aluminum, gotta go to a machine shop. I also learned that all three of the brake drums I brought in were out of spec. This all also made me realize I put the 510 sho...
