Stripdown and repaint of these suspension components

Now its the turn of some suspension and axle components to be refurbished

Front & rear leaf springs stripped for painting
Front & rear leaf springs back together

"We've turned the corner here! The front and rear springs were dismantled, de-greased, blasted and sprayed individually. This should avoid unsightly rust streaks appearing from between the leaves. Graphite grease was smeared on the leaves before they were re-assembled."

Here are some more photos showing work done on stripping, painting and overhauling the front axle, to which the refurbished front spring will be fitted.
