Painting Drive Shaft
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm getting my engine put in this week and the transmissions being painted, any problems with painting the Drive Shaft?

No....Paint it!!

Hang it up via a wire or whatever, tape off any exposed yoke surfaces that go into the transmission and paint away (why not paint it like a barber pole :D ).

i painted mine white... let it dry.. then taped it in a spiral like a barber pole then sprayed it red... its just something a little different...

Yours does look good though :thumbup:

looks great.

Does anyone know why some roundy round sanctioning bodies insist the D/S be painted white?

OneMoreTime 04-17-2012 09:02 AM

So we can see it when it comes out of the car...Real PITA to run over some guys driveshaft while on the track...

WOOF! Yeah that makes sense; so realtree camo is out? Perhaps DIRT sanctioning should look into barber pole painting for driveshafts?
