I stopped in at Troy's shop yesterday to see the progress on the rear end. I took a few pictures of everything laid out where he was working on it.
Here is a picture of the drain hole with the plug that was seized. Troy had to heat it up with a torch to remove the old plug. I will need to repaint around this area as the extreme heat damaged the POR-15.
Here is a video slideshow of pictures Troy took while rebuilding the rear end. Thank you Troy!
Joel started painting the transmission red. The engine will be painted red to match. There will be black accents on both the engine and transmission. I will take more pictures as it progresses.
