Got the rear disc brake brackets welded on, holes drilled out for 5/8” studs, and the center milled out to center on the axles. And got the pinion set up. Also got the driveshaft length figured, picking it up Monday. Gonna finish setting the gear up tomorrow and start on the firewall tinwork.

Got the pattern made to make the removable 2 piece center panel made. Gonna brake them up tomorrow and install them and the back will be finished. The tinwork will completely hide the modern looking wheel tubs so it looks correct I’m the drivers compartment.
