    It's been a long time since I've posted in here....since the old s13 (miss her with a passion). But I've decided to get back amongst the smoke,whips and skids!!

    So I went fishing for something that was modern, solid enough to handle the beating that was comin to it... and handle the daily!
    Nothing better than a new for durability in my opinion, so found a couple coupes and saloons that we good candidates n settle here

    After welding one side it was time to turn the diff to get to the other side.. .But it was so tight that I thought he'd welded suttin he shouldn't ave.. But a bit off brute force and we got it spinning... heard a thew say it's normal that is tight.. But a couple say there's sound freely... so a lil confused...

    Looks like there was a bit of spatter on the ring gear; same thing happened to my diff and it made it hard to turn. Probably best to chip as much as you can off and clean it out while its open
