I've started a thread on another forum (TMS), but that site has had nothing but problems with glitches and bugs. Thought I'd bring my project since I know there are a few others in the same boat as myself. Anyway, I'll mostly add pictures for now and update as I go along.

Nice! Keep us posted.

I was in the same boat, started posting about my project on TMS, but haven't been able to post pictures from my phone for over a year now. Oh well. Generally good guys over there, but I find I get more and faster answers in the first gen section here than TMS, maybe more classics owners here.

TMS was "bought" by IB Autogroup. They collect multiple car/truck forums and run them on the same software basically. The site worked great for a few months but once again had started to be neglected.

Anyway, next up is front and rear suspension. Going with a Rod and Custom coil over in front, and going to put a 8.8" in the back.

Looking very much forward to following your build. I have a neglected 70 Boss 302 in my garage that needs some TLC!

Just purchased the rear end. 8.8" out of a 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe.

Just need to weld on spring perches and we should be good to go.

Did a little cosmetic work on my 8.8" rear end. Cut off all of the shock brackets so I could weld on new leaf spring perches. I think it came out pretty well.

I will post a picture of it tomorrow after I put on the truck bed liner.

What's with the dent in the diff cover? Did the prior owner go off-roading with it? ;)

I have a spare 8.8 cover kicking around if you need one.

I'm guessing shipping/handling. It happened after he primed it so I'm guessing it wasn't under a car

Thanks for the offer, but the rebuild kit I'm ordering comes with a new cover.
