Unpainted Henschen Axles?
Today a customer came in to get the bearings repacked on their Airstream, and as I was working on it, I noticed the axles looked horrible. They were spray painted, and lots of rust was showing through the silver paint. The axles also had what looked like the old Henschen build tags on them. I could tell the axles had been out, they had relatively new mounting bolts on them. They also had all new backing plates, drums, shocks, and bearings.
When I asked the customer about this, he told me he had the axles replaced about 2005 or so, and when he picked the trailer up, he noticed they were completely unpainted, and already starting to rust. So, has anybody else run across replacement Henschen axles that were unpainted when delivered?
