To flip the axle I had to do some changes to the stearing linkage. I removed the drag link arm now on the bottom and welded it to the top. I cut the stearing knuckle shaft shorter and put a bolt and washer like the other side

Well got the body parts painted up today. Epoxy primer then three coats of sublime pearl base coat followed by two coats of PPG clear. The engine and hood are almond color. Going to use the older international red black hood stickers. Not sure yet fenders will be custom made and round maybe stainless.

Well had a productive morning I made the two foot rest, and the seat from diamond plate aluminum. Its tuff doing nice clean bends when you don't have a brake  :wallbanging:  .  Also was able to make the headlight plate from stainless that still needs some buffeting.

Got the hood painted. I did almond base clear topped off with a new chrome emblem. The dame thing looked like someone shot it with a shotgun. Lots of heating and tapping to get rid of the dings but I am happy with the results.

Well got my dash panel done today. Took longer to buff the stainless then it did to do the cut outs..Will need to do a couple notches in the steering column to accept the two outer gauges.

Well got the front end sorted out this morning. I used 3/16 expanded aluminum that looks almost exactly like original. The top part is buffed stainless. The sticker is cut from the dash decal of a 70..

Well I finally got the diff sorted out. It seems it will be the most demanding and costly part of the build. So here is a list of what I did.

Replaced Carrier for later model bolt togather type.

Replaced axles for fine spline.

Replaced axle bushings for needle bearings.

Replaced all seals.

Replaced all bearings and cups.

Replaced shift forks for heavy duty.

Replaced input shaft.

Replace internal brake disks

Leather shifter knob

The other thing I did was had a heavy duty bearing holder made for the front of the pinion shaft. When you flip the carrier the strain is then pulling on the front bearing of the shaft and that snap ring is not up to the job. Total cost $805.00 that does not include the beer and coffee and bribe cost to the wife for letting me get it done. :-)

Got my steering wheel done today also. Kinda made my own thing using the original hub. Cut some stainles plates welded them in.  Made a two spoke wheel so I can see my gages. I bought a black steering cover that I cut shorter then glued it to the outer rim.
