Yeah,,now $350 worth of wheels and drivers and j can finish this puppy up..got a rebuilt 440.skis are done,gotta rebuild the clutch and rivet on cleats..anyone know where to get replacement cleats? Got some missing and fractured ones..need about 10.

What did you mean "skis are done"? What did you do to them? I think the skis on my Speedway may be too far gone and not sure what ski makes a suitable replacement.

    i just blasted them,primed and painted them with Aluminum Rustoleum.. i know its tough finding good ones.. wasnt going to pay the long dollar for re-chroming..I used new Polaris ski shocks..i just drilled the bushings out to 7/16 so they would fit..ill dig them out and throw a couple pics on later..I did manage to come up with 26 new cleats.. Just gotta keep picking away..

    Cool thanks. I'm hoping after blasting my skis don't look like swiss cheese.

    Looking great.  Redoing a track is a necessary but hard job!
    What is it with you and rusty old crap??         Mrs. Philh
