Clean, Blast, Refill and Paint

Cleaned the inside with mineral spirits. No sludge & not much filings in oil.
Refill with Hydraulic oil from lowes
Gaskets were fine, didn't replace
The levers work in a nice smooth motion. Finish filling shocks with a plunger that I bought to fill motorcycle batteries.
Use steel wool to prep the aluminum housing to give it a satin look
After blasting, primed the arms & paint with Rustoleum spray cans & clear coat the whole thing

Paint Arms Black & Clear the entire shock
