    I just got done welding the diff in the rear.
    Get to test it out tommorow. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
    Found out real fast that if the wheel is cranked all the way and ya give it a lot of gas it goes straight. LOL

    Real easy to do. I should have done this a long time ago.
    I had some driveability concerns as I have a long twisty road up to the house, No sweat.
    Unless the wheel is cranked all the way I don't even know that it is locked.

    We just finished welding Reddog64's 14 bolt a few hours ago /forums/images/icons/cool.gif All went well and he seemed happy when he left.../forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
    We made prety good time so we stopped for a bite to eat and decided to hack his front fenders. They turned out really good too. At Aaron's suggestion I capped the now open part of the fender and added a new lip up to the top of the cut and welded it up solid. A few minutes with the grinder and it looks awesome!

    Hopefully Aaron sees this post and show's some pic's...

    any chance one of you guys could snap a good (ie not blurry) pic of just the spiders after welding them? The pic in the tech write-up here on CK5 is pretty blurry. Not a knock on the author of the article... just looking for somethin a little clearer...
