how's the welding going?
Finished up my certs in both MIG and TIG at Hennepin Tech. Might go back and get my full fledged "degree" at some point but who knows. First, I want to actually acquire a TIG machine since that is super fun. Time consuming, but looks so damn nice if you do it enough. Was getting pretty decent with Stainless near the end, but it's already been over a year since I finished so I'm way out of practice I'm sure.

Yeah... we'll see what happens. Been pricing out all the other stuff I need to finish up the suspension today. Doesn't seem too spendy, but I'll talk with the wife once I get a complete list.
Over the weekend, I officially got my Dana 44 back. Wasn't even touched in the year the guy had it. I guess my dad talked to him on the phone this past weekend and he actually had the ***** to say that I should call him and he'll walk me through the whole thing when I get to working on it. I wanted to call him to just tell him where to stick it.
Probably going to end up paying someone to put together the 44 just so I know that one is done right. The 9", I'll keep working on as I'm so damn close. I was recommended a place down in Zumbrota called Zumbrota Bearing and Gear
. Charge $375 to setup an axle and it seems to be a pretty flat rate (assuming of course there is no missing parts), and they don't guarantee the parts if you bought them, but still. Seems to be one of the better deals I've seen giving how few and far between places are that are actually willing to touch axles. Seems like axle setup is a rare thing.
We'll see. I've really been debating about just saying screw it to the whole thing recently as well and selling everything off. Starting to get frustrated with dead-end after dead-end after dead-end.
