Steering lock sorted by JDI Fabrication.

Dont fret over the watts link being crooked but i still need to make some shorter arms.

Coilovers are in and have a real nice action.

Diff is now a full spool sporting moser 31 spline axles. Brand new tailshaft too.

Legit ex NASCAR exhaust, just waiting on which car it was run on. Bit of fun trying to source mandrel 3.5 ovasl tube as its not used here.

thinking of bringing in a container of it as we have had fab shops and a couple of race teams approach us for qty.
