It's crazy how much you can spend on these things. I hope not to be anywhere near $70 when it's all done but I know i'll be close to $50-$55ish
Post some pics of his work and keep us updated with the progress pictures

My sexy rear end

Decided to go ahead and do the 12 bolt swap and not wait on doing the 4 link yet since i'm unemployed and might have to move, i'd rather leave the 10 bolt 3:08 behind and have the 12 bolt 3:55 posi in the car and driveable.
Got it cleaned up and new seals ready to slide it in

Yeah, figured you would get more for scrap metal than selling it.

Made a little interstate run to see what cruising RPM's would be now and it jumped to 70 mph @ 3170 rpm from the 70 mph @ 2750 rpm's... definitely a noticeable difference.

And of course, I had to make sure the posi unit worked

Made a block off plate for the wiper motor hole. DSE makes a nice wiper kit that hides the motor inside the cowling.

It was a police escort from the car show to the Air Museum. The cops loved my car and asked if they could take pics with it.
