Got most of the grunt work done, I hate grinding... Plasma cutter made quick work of the brackets. Still need to run over it with a wire wheel. I believe this was a northern differential, it had a lot of rust pits in it. It's no show car, so it'll work.
Now I need to measure and lay out the brackets in cad so I can cut them out on a buddy's plasma table.
