Picked up a ford 8.8 for around 150$. It was pretty complete everything their and in good condition except e brake lines that where cut.

The 8.8 will be getting a new limited slip unless I can find a electric locker for a fair price or I get a big pay check. Also I'll be ordering nitro 4.56 gears and a master install kit, going to try to find a friend to do this for cheap instead of paying 300+ but so far no luck finding anyone who can. Should be getting my master brake kit from east coast gear supply by Thursday. My install kit from ruffstuff came in the other day.
its a pretty beefy kit.

Spent yesterday taking all the stuff off the axle brakes lines all that crap and today I'm gonna clean it up maybe sandblast a little.
Oh and today I got my complete brake kit and my drive shaft flange adapter from east coast gear supply.

Today working on finishing up tube bender got the stand all put together and welded up and about to put some concrete anchors un the floor.
Making my own degree wheel trying to save some money.

Here is cardboard cut out, making the final one with some plexi glass hope it holds up infer the pressure.

Heck yes! Hopefully Sunday il be cutting those rear corners off similar to how yours are and mocking up some sliders.
I think I'm gonna weld the sliders to the stiffeners at three of 4 points, think that's a good idea? I'd hate to drill through that thick a** steel and the uni body.

i think it's a great idea. I don't like the idea of bolted sliders anyways...

made my degree wheel and pointer for the bender oh and the handle. First i tried without the extended handle and that pipe was going nowhere!
here is the degree wheel and pointer. Made the degree wheel out of a degree wheel from summit, my dad had it around for something but we made a scan of it and taped it to some plexi glass and then screwed a clear cut out on top if the degree paper.

Here is the handle i made out of 3 pieces of 4.5" plate and 40" of 1.5DOM tube.


Then i calibrated my die!
I did a 90* bend to calibrate the clr, the die list has the clr as 6.00 and mine came out to 6.25 so not to far off.
then my uncle came over and decided to try it out and made a 45* bend.



Bend-tech is still pretty confusing to me starting to figure it out more and more but if anyone is reading this and uses bendtech how exactly do you use it? I dont get the locations, is that the center of the bend? Also when you fill out lengths is A1 the length you will be sticking out of the bender like your mark location when you calibrate the die?
