    I am in the "cleaning" part of my axle upgrade. What are some easy methods to clean the inside of the axle tubes? I need a bore brush from a battleship or something LOL. Thanks.

    I used brake clean and a old t-shirt on the end of a
    long push broom.

    How about a chimney sweep's broom with the bristles cut down a bit? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    <font color="green"> I took a peice of 3/4" wide aluminum flat stock, drilled a hole in the end, bent it to 90 degrees then bolted a 1.25" OD fender washer to the hole and used it to scrape all the gunk out of the tube. Worked pretty well. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif</font>
