Very sharp looking, Mal!
Must be getting pretty heavy at this point when you get all the parts together like that?

Hi all , Terry Kim thanks for looking in, Kim with all the parts together in a box it is feeling very heavy now not sure how much it will weigh when its complete.Well finish the rear axle with all its parts finally ,I had taken a couple of pics on making the last few parts for the axle but managed to delete them before i had posted them  :killcomputer: so here is a couple of pics on the completed axle.
