    Jag köpte drivaxlarna på summit racing
    Jag köpte även lager och plattor som håller fast axlarna och för säkerhets skull även nya ändar
    men dom behövde jag inte
    De är samma grejer till 9" med små lager och 28 spine så det var inget konstigt

    I bougt the drive shaft of summit racing
    I bought even berings and backing plates to hold the shafts and to be shore eve new ends
    but i don't used them
    That is same parts to 9" with small bearings and 28 spline shaft so it's nothing strange

    and i did't use google translate

  19. I was a little surprised by the choice of wheels, as I was expecting something more `kustom` looking, but they actually look really fine.

    Wheels & tire combo make it look like a hot rod, not a custom. I like it.

    Just found this thread. Don't leave me hanging. I want to see your car with windows. I cannot believe the method you used for chopping that top.
    Out standing work.
    If I visit relatives in Smaland I will have to try to visit you at a car show.
