    Wow! I haven't looked at mine yet. I'm kind of waiting for that inevitable day when I have to clean the tank (not looking forward to it).

    I didn't think the brakes were going to be that bad, but I see I should make sure to bring an extra dose of patience!

    Keep up the good work! I'll be referencing this thread for the months/years to come as I get mine going.

    Awesome that was my intent of doing a build thread. To show people that you can do it yourself and that these cars can be saved .

    finished rebuilding the axles today. Some Recommendations after my experiences.
    - assemble the bearings and races before you install the race on the axle, much easier in my opinion.
    -you can work the boots on by squeezing towards the lip of the boot to keep the boot expanded and pushing up at the same time.
    -ditch the stock hex bolts as others have said on the forum, I attached a picture of the fastenal bolts and part number I just bought yesterday.
    -I initially cleaned all the parts in a parts washer on disassembly but I then ended up still needing to use a brake cleaner and shop towels to do a good cleaning before assembly.
    -Also play close attention to the orientation of the races on disassembly, it is easy to assemble the races backwards. My picture shows proper install orientation, note that the axle sleeve is flush up, and that the races go fat across from skinny, not fat across from fat.
