Scored a nine inch out of an EK for the ute today, pick it up tomorrow, think I’ll swap it for the BW diff in the wagon

Heh Greg, I had to ask the wife what you mean. After a couple giggles, she told it was a big F#*d DIFF.
Still not sure why she was talking about a diff, with her girlfriends last year but good to she is in the car stuff
There is a right way and a wrong way and then there is my way which is usually the long way.

Picked up the diff, fuel and brake lines today.

Diff has all the needed bits and a bonus drain plug and mini spool :twisted:

Hey Gaz;
Did the 9" come with brakes if so what are they and if not what are you going to run, the 9" I did for Kens V8 FC came with Commodore brakes but whoever did the diff had cut the ends of the tubes when they shortened it and welded the commodore ends on.

Front clip off today, no rust on the upper firewall Image quick hose off
Now strip and freshen up the firewall with a bit of GMH Black before installing the new clip.

Oh and a few more kgs of red dirtImage

You didn’t waste any time getting the subframe off Gazza. Obviously not worth saving. Interesting the difference in condition between that and the rest of the body.
