    If you just want decent I'd grab some VHT Roll Bar & Chassis paint. Advance Auto Parts sells it. I've used a bunch of it over the years. Pretty good stuff for something out of a rattle can. JMHO.

    Someone refresh my memory, I'm dropping the steering gear while the lower control is off, after I get the steering shaft loose, will the gear drop out without taking the column out ?

    Been a long time since that was out. JB blaster and use a heat gun on it. No flame to worry about. But some time's nothing but a hammer and a big set of vise grips. Would see if you can get the bolt to turn first. After JB blaster and heat gun. Good luck my friend. Had the same problem with mine when taking it down.
