Back to welding.

Pic 1, 2, 3 - the start of the "bends" of the backbone that will go around the differential. Obviously I cannot go *through* the differential ;-)

Pic 4: The backbone is essentially complete as now I have the rear a-arm mounts drilled, machined and welded on. The next step is my most hated part of any metal project - grinding off slag and mig balls.

I also started machining the bushings for the rear a-arms (upper and lower) and I'm assuming since they're almost identical to the front bushings you probably don't want another 20 pictures of my lathe spinning away. I figure I'll save the space on this forum system.
