    Thanks, Paul...Don't know how I missed that, remember jumping right into the steering box rebuild. Good idea, 'up tight, outa sight and in the groove!'

    Looks like it should work there,
    it'll get a little strengthening and a hold down.
    Need to devise some kind of mechanism for parking brake actuation, rods, levers and cables...
    pretty tight in there..

    Couple pieces of flat stock to stiffen it up and welded in.

    how do you get the battery out? looks like it will hit the trans. it can't go up it will hit the floor.

    This may be a stupid question but why a two piece driveshaft?

    The yoke on the transmission is bolted to the output shaft, somethings gotta give.

    Nothing to report, sorry to say.
    I did buy a bunch of steel,
    3/4" square tube and 18 gauge sheet for the floor and 20 gauge for the body.
    Just a matter of making it happen.
     
  15. WOW!!! what a great build. I love seeing these types of builds on the HAMB. Keep the updates coming.
