You know, you're right. The original arms were not coated with any rubber compounds. I think my current plan of 3 coats rust-encapsulation and 3 coats of the hard chassis paint.

I think that will be a very robust covering. Perhaps comparable or even better than the factory coating. This stuff is pretty robust/tough.

I'm even thinking of dropping the other control arm on the car and repeating the process (minus the complete rebuilt...maybe just bushings)

I've got more pics coming too Maybe I'll actually break down and pick up one of these cameras. They're like $400 for the body, lens, and the standard accessories.
