    Great project.
    All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi
    Far from suicidal
    Still I get them tendencies
    Bringing back them memories
    That I really miss when I reminisce

    Some more progress today.
    Transfer box fitted to the engine and box and all fitted to the car.
    Rear gearbox mount made, cars back on the floor.
    It's all just tack welded for now incase I need to move anything later on.
    Going to get alot more done this week providing the weather holds up.

    Yes mate that's what I'm saying is the hardest part done, the rear should be just more straight forward as there's a lot more space to work with. Plus it's just 4 bolts that holds the subframe and it's flat.

    Fabulous work!!
    This is by no means a criticism, more a discussion piece
    I never realised the transfer box came off the diff drive output (maybe because I've never seen a GM 4WD setup before), soooo without an LSD, if the passenger side wheel lost traction there would be next to zero drive to the rear? Also if the drivers side lost traction, there would be some crazy shaft speeds to the rear?
