    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 :haha:

    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? :confused:

    Look, no Tim drama in this thread please. I don't want to hear it anymore. :crazy:

    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. :eek1: 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! :bow:

    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. :rolleyes:

    Really nice welds man. And cheap too! Shame it would cost about ten times the price of them to ship them to England!

    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???
