    You're doing a nice job there. Looks like some tricky work.

    Got the stock back seat out of my 40 2 door sedan. It is currently upholstered in Black Velvet and sits great. If you are interested, free to you another 40 lover, you just have to pay the shipping. Ray, Rio Rancho, New Mexico

    Thanks sir! I wonder what the best way to ship that thing would be? Fastenal, Greyhound? Shipping on big stuff anymore is pretty high these days.

    Big but light, that will help. Greyhound limits 29 high x 47 wide x 82 long and 100 lbs. I will measure the seat tomorrow. It might fit. I could wrap in cardboard and plastic wrap, what do you think?

    Ryan, looks like you're making progress. I've been so busy on my car lately, I haven't been keeping up with builds like yours. I finally took the time today to get caught up on this one.

    It's a shame we're so far apart. I could have modified the axles or brake rotors to fit for you.

    Like you, I ditched the Explorer axle in the Healey and went to a 9". I just haven't posted that up yet. What size bearing does your Bronco rearend have? If it had the Torino style housing, then the Explorer disc brakes should just about fit. I have a Currie rear in the 46 and it has an Explorer disc kit. If I recall, there was a spacer that had to installed on the bearing, but they are available separate.

    Mike, if I remember correctly it is a small bearing housing. I actually purchased dome rotors for an 04-06 E-150 that are looking promising to fit on these axles. Here's the kicker.... This morning I went and bought another 58 Ford 9". Basically what I took out of it 4 years ago. Oh well. I have one for when I find a 40 to build for my daughter.

    Boy oh boy this year just keeps throwing curve balls!!!! 97* last Sunday and then a low of 46* Tuesday night. Craziness.

    Anyhow, my next pair of rotors showed up and they fit! I might have to have a shim made to help center them but I don't think that will be a big problem. I haven't had much free time to work on it but I got the LH shock mount in and started filling in the pieces. O wish I would have made it one piece now but I wanted to tie the seams into each bar behind it. No one will ever see it when the floor is over it any way so I don't know why I am worrying.

    Looking great, Ryan! I wish I had done a 9” instead of the 8.8 in my 48; that offset makes the driveshaft look caddy-wompas.

    Yes the off set in ford 9" is a pain. BUT when you narrow them you can center them in the tunnel Done it many times.

    Ok, I didn’t know the 9” had an offset; I was talking about my 8.8. Do all the Ford reareds have it?

    some Ford vehicles had an offset engine to the right which also then created even more driveshaft/pinion offset------with lucky choice of the source, sometimes only had to narrow one side of housing----
    By popular opinions-just a grumpy old man key board bully--But really, if you are going to ask for help on an internet site, at least answer questions about what you are asking about-----
