I'm shy on funds but my builder has my ideas and pictures and can get steel too. It's on the to do list this summer maybe.

Chop, cut, rebuild time!

Need to do some rust repair on the floors, probably end up replacing the complete pass. side floor pan, also gonna rework them a little for some more seat room.



Nice job they did cutting this hole....



New front axle almost stripped and ready to be narrowed



new rear axle, cleaned up and tubes welded.

That's definitely one nice part of the EB floors and how sqaure cut flat panels. Makes reworking and replacing so much easier.

I like the 8.8, really close in strength to a 9", 31 spline, higher pinion, slighty wider, has discs already.
