You will be better signing up to a photobucket account mate, that way you can add pics to your replies as you progress

see HERE

What have you used to clean the rear axle, a flap disc? Are you planning on painting it or powder coating it?

Thanks Guys

New to all this stuff! set up a Photobucket account now. Cheers :)

I used a Ceramic P80 150 mm Sanding Disc we've started getting them from Germany at work and they are a good abrasive.

they have a multi-hole extraction system that clears the dust. cleaned all the old paint and rust of perfect.

I was going to use a flap-wheel but thought it might be a bit aggressive and not so controllable!

I'm thinking of spraying it in black as it was with a 2K paint. might even put stone chip on it to protect it from the Devon roads! what do you think?

Thanks again :)
