Did you make another diff cover? How many have you made so far. I thought you only owned one blazer.
damn hope it holds enough fluid, looks a little small
lol, yeah I only own one truck, but other people own trucks with 14b's too. No idea how many I've made...probably 10+.
As for the size, it's only 1/4" deeper at it's deepest than a stock cover. A bit bigger in every other dimension though.
Nice welds and Fab work! Any for sale?
I wish that I could weld THAT good! Sweet! I do belive that the diff cover is NOT the weakest link.
looks like a 3/8 flange but what is the cover itself? doubled up 1/4?
Is that TIG or MIG welded? Very nice work once again!!
It's all 100% 3/8 plate. No 1/4.
And the welds are MIG welds.
DAMN good welds for a MIG I thougth for sure TIG, what machine are you using??
Lincoln PowerMIG 200. Or is it 215...Hmm...One of the two. lol
one question, how did you get that weld so big?? making small u's when welding??
You're pretty close...I don't use the u weave, more of a lazy j weave to make them that big. Lazy j weave going downhill.
hmmm never heard of the lazy j, but they look good
Weaves arent a set in stone kinda thing. For the most part atleast. Just use what works best.
Ill have to give the lazy j a try
Most of the time I like a straight whip or a straight U weave. I agree though. it's whatever works the best.
How much does it weigh?
Dunno...20lbs+ maybe. Why?
