Body kits, blown diffs and bumper bars...

So friday was the day I Brian taught me how to repair (read not make perfect) fiberglass body kits. In the past I had only used zip ties and duct tape, and that worked fine. All I can say is this... I was never itchy for days when repairing with zip ties and duct tape.


So I also had this knocking noise coming out of the rear end of my car. I knew I had destroyed an axle at  vegasdrift rd. 4, but I didn't know I destroyed my diff too. I broke the welds on the spider gears, and 6 teeth off of the pinion gear!!! Great work Dan...

Also the drain plug looked like my hair.


Cracked welds, and metal chunks... mmmmm mmmmm good. This sucker lasted 4 years of hard abuse! 


The fresher diff.


We needed to apply some tow hooks to the whip, so Brian set out to bend some pipe and weld it on to some other things that attached to the car. Technical, I know.





We attached a strap and I now have a rear tow strap. All I need now is some stickers that say "Here is the strap that is sticking out of the rear bumper, it is a tow strap and should be used as such".
