So, this weekend I continued doing what I've done in the past few weeks: namely disassembling parts in no particular order and sandblasting. However, this weekend there were a few twists. First, instead of using my sandblaster I went to this shop in Langley called U BLAST where they supply the equipment and you do the work. Great idea. In any event, I took in my inner front wings because they were too big for my sandblasting cabinet. They came out looking great, especially after I applied some etching primer. Can anyone tell me if they see an "extra" holes in these parts, especially the left one? Next, my dad and I finally removed the last spring and, in doing so, I discovered something interesting. The left rear spring has "J3829" stamped in it (see photo). Then, when I examined the front axle, it also had "4525" and "JFC" stamped into it. I had read that the front axle stamp number was supposed to exist, but had also read that it frequently couldn't be found. The spring stamp took me completely by surprise. I have not closely examined the other springs for numbers, but I will in a couple week's time when I'm back out at Harry's barn.
