The weekend started with a good friend and neighbor, Noel, doing some excellent welding in a few places on the axle housing
After a bit of grinding here and there, the axle spring saddles were prepared, then all the internal areas were painted to avoid any rust problems.
Saddle contact areas were then fully greased and the saddles fitted.
A gasket was made and the torque tube and diff were joined
The next few days will see, the diff cover, axle shafts and brake backing plates fitted. The complete assembly will then be painted and fitted to the chassis.
