I ordered 2 bronze Oiltite bushings 1" O.D.x 3/4" I.D.x 2-1/2" L to be installed by the machinist who will use a reamer to ream out both spindle shafts on the axle, then I'll cut off the head of the zert fitting and use it as a guide to drill a grease hole through the bushing without harming the zert threads, then I will install a new zert. I also order 2 new ball joints, and a whole new drag link bar from Tube Frame Restorations. I also orders the steering bushing and bought some Plastic epoxy to fix the small crack in the steering wheel. I found a actual picture of the seat new and I'm taking the seat to place that does custom car upholstery to recover the seat pan. The decals should come in next week. I'll spray it down with degreaser again and PW it for the third time and spray OSPHO on any rust spots. Any bare metal or rusty areas will get self etching metal primer. For the black color I'm mixing a special blend of gloss black alkyd implement paint with Anchors 9177 satin tower paint, it is the hardest paint I have ever used, it will stick to stainless steel and even a putty knife wont scrape it off, no primer needed. I want the hardness of the tower paint, but I want a little more shine, that's the reason for the mix. the seat pan, hood and dash will get sanded, primed, sanded, primed, and sanded again, then 3 coats of white automotive paint. NOTE: I must warn others of performing routine maintenance work,this project started as a tune up on the carb, it's gotten out of hand.
