I built a frame rotating machine so I could paint it without having to spray upside down.

The green primer is a self etching primer from Dupont.

After etching the frame, I sprayed Rustbullet on it. It is similar to POR-15, except it can handle the UV rays better. It can be topcoated also, and it is cheaper. I'm sold on it.

Your cheating, I see an assistant caveman...I will have to google Rustbullet and find out more about it...POR15 is good stuff - but pricey...However, slow down, I can't keep up to you. I found some IH Scout II front disc and rear drum axles for $350.00 I bought today...3.08 ratio....getting rid of my Dana 27 - 4.28...with overdrive...to many levers.

I want an overdrive... Just can't afford one.

I inspected the rear end, and found the spyder gears had some teeth broken off. It was fun trying to find a set of gears.
I replaced the bearings and seals while I had it apart. I installed the new pinion seal backwards, so I had to order a new one and replace it again.
