That's what I wanted to hear.

Small update: tie rods showed up early so I got the old ones off and the new ones situated.

Took out the L dash beam and replaced it with the rs beam so I could bolt up my column.

Encountered my first problem with my lower engine placement. The steering joint comes up a slight bit short. Going to cut it at the welds and replace it with some extended one inch tubing.

And the differential fits snug and out of the way. The housing is to heavy to put in by myself so the cover will suffice for your viewing pleasure.

Filling up my argon Monday before class, and hopefully this guy with hubs gets back to me.
