Re: driveshaft and steering shaft finishes
It depends on how involved you want to get???????????????
Here is what I did with my D. Shaft. Had it glass beaded, Painted it with the " Stainless paint, Then, Painted the weld yokes with cast blast type paint. Then get a can of dark blue spray paint, MASK up the shaft so,,, JUST the two welds show----- Spray some blue spray paint at a DISTANCE,,, So the welds have the look of some blue " Hot Spots "-- here and there. We are almost done!
Then, Two jackstands with towels in the grooves. With the shaft masked up,, Paint the correct stripes. ( mine had three, Yellow-Blue-Orange) My 70 driveline is the G.M.= 3-R. I used SIX colors of paint on my drive shaft. In the weld yoke holes where the liquid Nylon was, I cut little pieces of RED, Weed wacker string and glued them in the holes of the weld yokes.
After the finished new lookin " 3-R " driveshaft is ready to be attached to the 454-M-22-70, One last detail.... Small brush and some cast blast, PAINT the inside snap rings on the shaft to help hide them.
It will take some time to do this,,,,,, BUT,,,,,, The results are wonderful!
