INNER CV JOINTS PAINTING

Painted them earlier for the factory look green heres a pic of before of driveshafts on diff the paint its called Japlac high gloss finish for wood and metals the colour is British Racing Green the second pic was when I used a light wire brush to get dirt and rust off sandpaper for edges and used a soapy j-cloth to get remainder of dust off painted it came out great especially looking at them behind the car. It would have needed a primer if bare metal so just painted over old paint should be grand takes 2 hours to dry. The left driveshaft on diff was a bit tidious to get at with exhaust in the way but worked around it
