Photo No.3 first pilot hole drilled through the welded plug. I will use a ¾" hole saw to remove all the welding.

Now for the differential, I am using the Ford 8 ½" LSD diff from the donor vehicle.
This measures 55" from flange to flange which needs to be cut down to 51 inches to keep in with the 20% difference from the front axle.
Photo No.1 shows all the plates that need to be removed.
Photo No.2 shows the welded plugs that will need to be drilled out to remove the tubes.
Photo No.3 shows the breather tube, which may need to be moved.

I put the body onto the chassis it now looks like I have progressed onto something that resembles a T-Bucket. New Zealand has outlawed vertical steering columns so I have to use a slanting steering column which means off to the car wreckers to find a steering box that will suit. You also are not aloud to have any welding between the steering wheel and the stub axles this will only make it more of a challenge.
