To install the sexy new driveshaft permanently I needed to roll out the diff to burn in the perches, as I showed y'all last time. When it was time to roll it back under and hook up the springs I noticed that something wasn't quite right:
I cant remember if we didn't make sure the shackles were installed correctly or if I did something different this time, but they would simply not fit and sing properly against the frame...so I had to modify them:
Before we put the tub back on I did a little bit of wiring--anything that was going to run along or inside the frame, like the float gauge:
Then, for the final time (hopefully), permanently mounted the body. Jeff had given me some camo overalls as an official redneck initation gift, and I accepted. Plus, this photo will freak out all my Yankee friends:
If anyone wants Jeff's old hard doors he wants to sell them for $200. I thought I would throw that out there...He would prefer not to ship them. You could get them in North Arkansas or down here in Biloxi:
The picture don't show much but they are at least in $200 shape
I'd give them a 7/10...need to be painted and cleaned up but the glass is all there and they hold together...no major dents or nothing.
