Got started on the front spring packets. Took them all apart and cleaned and painted. Found bushings at a spring shop near by. For anyone who’s interested the bushing size is id 7/8 od 1 1/8 x 2 1/8 frame shackle is I’d 7/8 od 1” x 2 1/8. Will be doing the steering boots soon.

Looks great!! When you do the boots get a fresh set of M35 boots and a buddy to help put them on. Just finished mine and will be packing the knuckles with grease tomorrow. The take one pound each side. A tube of grease is 14 oz. FYI. Keep up the great work.
