Here it is, scraped and painted. Very humid here, it took 2 days to fully dry.
The bowed axle is still bothering me. It's mocking me, trying to stare me down.
Now on to replacing all the bolts, nuts & washers. I must say it was a bit of a pain in the ass to find 5/16" nylon stainless lock nuts, Lowes prevailed, but only in stupid small quantity plastic bags of 3 or 5. Who comes up with that shit? Who says, "Hey, let's put odd numbers of things in little bags, won't that be great?!" I slap the person who thought of this, hard, in the face, perhaps more than once.
Lesson learned - galvanized bolts do not fit onto stainless steel nuts.
