Frame looks good and makes me want to go source a replacement diff cover to have it sprayed up in one of the body colours I'll be using. Might be a bit odd though against an all black chassis and not visible anyway.

I'll settle for a running car at this time.

Yes, i went to my bolt shop and told them i needed lock nuts that could handle high heat. That is what they ordered in for me. I also replaced the bolts with new ones to be on the safe side. The other bolts on the rear end have been tied with safety wire and locktite'd as well.

I have gone a bit trigger happy with the spray gun as you can see. I know it wont be seen but i couldnt resist. Will probably end up having to strip it all down and do it in black after a couple of years, but its fun for now.
