It was covered in grease and road grime. This picture is actually AFTER the first round of scraping and cleaning.


Detailed pictures of smaller items such as this emergency brake linkage are very helpful when reassembling. This will have to be completely disassembled, cleaned, and replated before assembly.

Every rubber bushing, every bearing, and a lot of the nuts and bolts are rusty and difficult to remove. We’ll be restoring many of these pieces, but the shocks and springs are too far gone to restore. New OE Boge shocks are currently unavailable so we’ll be installing new shocks and springs from a different manufacturer.
