They fit good. There was some rust issues under every piece I cut off, but no big deal. I think you told me the guy you got them from had them outside at one time. The pan will be blasted anyway. Thanks for hooking me up with them though

We have a four day shutdown coming up at work starting wednesday evening so, no progress will be made till after start-up.

Plus, I have some orders to fill for some clients. (thats more $$$ for my project, and I don't mind that)

Well, since I couldn't go to eurofest because of some work that came in unexpectedly I did make some time today to make a new monting plate for the 915 shifter, and TIG weld it in...

Got some more done today. I now have plenty of clearance for the CV's! Also, seam welded the frame horns up.

Lovely welding, but I hope you are putting some strength in elsewhere as those framehorns have been severely weakened...

I have thought of that Ricola...ran out of time to do that part (quit rushing me! )

The steel I used to "fill in" the part I cut out is 1/4" thick and is fully welded, but will add some material under the frame horns just in case.

I didn't realize the CVs on the 915 conversion were that much of a clearance issue?
Pretty easy to beef that area back up though. Work is looking awesome!
