Good work deserves praise. You EARNED that, fair and square......
Oh wow, those are some gorgeous welds brother!
Thanks Paul. Tip back a White Russian for me man...I'm workin on a couple bottles of nice Belgian Lambic Ale.
So how much do those cost?
wow, congrats Joe. if BillaVista like it, it must be good.
BTW, I bought one ... and that thing is a mofo. I don't worry about tearing the lip, or small third-world countries eating into my Detroit. And it painted up nicely
no offense joe until you have the privlage of having your diff covers on timmys truck your just a hack.... lambic ale huh, a conisour on top making mighty fine covers.
actually, Joe is the reason Tim no longer wants the HAD shafts on his truck. with welds like that, i'd be proud to have em on my rig. hmmmm... my derby truck has a 14FF in it. exactly how much abuse will one of these take?
Look, no Tim drama in this thread please. I don't want to hear it anymore.
Rugger, your covers are on the schedule for Saturday. Apologize for the serious delay. And yes, I'm lovin my Lambic... Not really loving the $5.69 a bottle price though...and thats for a 12oz bottle. Unfortuneatley, I'm spoiled for anything less...If you can get it in a 12 pack, no way I'll drink it. 6 pack maybe.
And my prices have gone down a bit....I'm selling the non countersunk ones for $125 and the countersunk style for $150 now.
How much abuse will they take? Anything. 100%, no questions asked, doesn't matter what happened or how it happened, if you manage to do somthing to one of my covers while its bolted to your truck that makes it un-useable, I'll replace it or refund your money. No questions asked.
Unfortuneatley for the time being, minus the few that I have to build this weekend, I can't take any additional orders. I'm in the middle of moving, getting settled in, new job etc. Won't have a shop to work out of for awhile. Might be workin somthin out with my boss at some poiont to use the shop, but thats not gauranteed. I WILL be building these soon, I just cant get serious about it for atleast another month or so.
And thanks for the good words!
ah, i'd have to crush a LOT of frame, bed, and rear suspension to even get to the diff in a derby. at that point, i've probably made money with the truck already, and the rear end will be the least of my concerns. just me thinking of overkill again.
Your welds are georgeous
Really nice welds man. And cheap too! Shame it would cost about ten times the price of them to ship them to England!
When I get the money saved up to regear, I WILL be buying one of those I love the drainplug and fill plug both on the same cover, and those things look beefy
I sent a pair of them to Stockholm, Sweden awhile back. I think it was $75 ea for shipping.
Really? I'm surprised it wasn't a lot more. Don't suppose you make them for '78 10 and 12 bolt axles do you???
Cool beans, & congrats
I havent made them for anything but the 14b ff and the D60....However, as soon as I get settled in at the new place, I'm gonna start figurin out somthin.
reckon I might just have to have some then! Post up if you do start making them.
Good luck with the move fella.
When $$$ lets me. i am getting one for the 60 and one for the 14b. nice work!
