    Yesterday we also shimmed the pan to level on the jack stands, then used a laser level to check if it was twisted at all.  FB487DBB-B1B4-4A74-A553-98CD26ECF03A7938E925-1907-43AA-98ED-D244DB0323FBD4F6386D-3F6E-4E6C-8C35-0DB331487BDF611CE5D7-F844-4F31-9476-0E3C0AF11A16933E3F8C-D4B7-46CF-AF0C-31D1C7C4BD542AE509DC-A0F4-46BA-B205-8980A664BE86B18FC317-B378-4535-92B8-E3DFD176C4A053AE4A19-0507-43FB-976C-9177F39ABF84

    Everything measured titty on a Ritty. Burned in the pan head conversion slowly moving around to spread the heat evenly. C4B2BE75-5F70-49E4-99D9-884ABB5B043996F6FC34-5B38-4FA4-BCA5-1E0D45BA69A4

    Pat, what kind of welder are you using on the cast torsion tubes?

    I’m a migger not a tigger.

    I’ve never had any issues welding to the torsion. Crank the heat up and let it ride.

    It’s not flux core is it? I showed a friend a pic and he thought it was.

    Looks good Pat. Is that center adjuster worth the effort?
    i got a bus trans in my baja, With the tall tires the gearing is good. With 3×3 arms, it uses stock baywindow axles.

    Andy…..Stock torsion housing are known to crack or strip out under hard use.  Never had one before. Will be nice for suspension setup.

    Finished welding in the torsion adjuster yesterday. Had to open up the bottom side more to get it welded all the way around. 6D9E6165-966E-421C-9932-076C339E4387

    Boxed around the adjusters for protection. BADAC4F5-3339-46B9-B0D3-B3748DBAC6A04E33C0E8-2A62-49D4-A7DD-50C6305EE5E2

    Some places are hard to reach.ABCAEA56-5B5E-4902-8777-3A40FD56132C

    Welded trans horn seams in small sections all the way around until solid. DC0DD568-1AF9-4758-ACAF-1FE14346100B

    Mocked up trans today. Had to modify the mid mount. Welded on studs for the mid strap.  B0019BEC-DD29-43CD-9546-528BC43B377A7254C08C-FF85-4BE0-BD06-31009261E0E18C24EEE0-260A-4C26-AA0B-512F49D8338A4922CD3A-6B78-4EA6-9986-86C38F12C3004DBAA933-AA3C-4FD9-9F01-D4D70C89A293

    Riley and I started on the shell yesterday.

    Riley cut out junk on the drivers side rear quarter where needed and started fitting a patch panel section. A05F6D72-235D-4437-8F0B-91D52D946FF85A1D9511-7387-409D-9BAD-943C56D863B76268D111-A1E1-41D4-90F1-1DBB0F12BE58

    l chopped the front end to fit a new one piece fiberglass front end I don’t have yet.

    Also a couple of rusty spots on the inner b pillars and front bulkhead.9D02E5DF-46F2-4E2E-864B-DBE3267A083D35157814-8FCB-4983-8E62-A3A67CB219850CE2858C-30BC-4C5A-BBD7-183E05208995E9B69EA0-76DB-42D4-8B12-A2597A201CA90CEE059A-459C-4B81-BF19-9E0EEC6CB45D1FEEB00A-D884-4EFE-A669-57F3356D2F6A
