We retained our front lower control arm, thinking it was the original. Bob Perkins set us straight, however. These are probably Ford replacements, due to the jacking stands (arrow). Perkins informed us that the correct style would have had bumps where the stands are-oh, well. We still moved ahead and did the half-paint thing. The back half is Martin Senour semigloss black, while the bearing end is detail gray. We left the adjusters (not shown)unpainted for now. Since the suspension will have to be worked on, we figured that it would be best to paint it after the alignment.
