    Build a cart for the rear end, so I can move it around once it’s built. I’m studying up on Vern’s guides for my first QC buildup...waiting on a few parts and consumables.

    I've been getting ready to attempt my first rebuild of a Ford "Banjo" rearend and was trying to come up with a good way to scoot the assembly around in my limited shop space. Your cart idea is perfect. Thanks for sharing that picture.

    Your axle housings are on the wrong sides. All else looks good.

    I wonder if a low arch spring (instead of a Model A spring) would clear with the spring perches upside down like that?!

    Put the rear end together, will still have it apart again after mock up to weld brackets on it.

    I got the spring spread with my porta power and had a face palm moment....I ordered a spreader that would fit around the halibrand.

    Very nice fab and resto work on the individual pieces. Is that engine seriously going into one of the cars? Will it fit?

    It’s going to take some massaging, there is an Australian 3 window with one.

    I'll be watching as this one comes together. That remote shifter mechanism is a neat touch.

    Holy ¥€$@. You’re putting a V12 FH in the roadster?? That is going to be epic!
