Painting Drive shaft

I cannot see any issue with painting the factory drive shaft... Mine has turned into rust... and needs to look good ASAP... Can anyone think of a reason that it would hurt it? I would not paint hte U joints!....

I hear the barber pole look is in this time of year

Seriously...I don't think there would be any issue with it. Just prep it like you would anything else.

Just make sure you paint it evenly.

I vote for hot pink..............

Then you can get the matching shock boots................



On the serious side, I dont see what it would hurt....it's only paint.
