Your GTB is going to turn out nicely "43 GPW. I like the effort you are putting out. I am sorry I wasn't able to help out with the wheels. I don't know many folks here in Wa. state having just moved here less than two years ago.

Thank you for the efforts. Where in Washington State? Hopefully by the Columbia river.

The Columbia River flows between Oregon and Washington and the state line is floating in it about 1/2 way across. It is about 2 1/2 hrs. south of where I live.

I got the rear axle tore down. It moved into the shop. The socket in the second picture is 8pt. 3 inch. the front is an 8pt. 3 3/8 inch socket.

Frame is sand blasted, primed and painted. I also finished the front differential. I will post some pictures of the diff when I can. All new seals, bearings and races. P.S. the seal reads "Rear" It is the same part number and physically the same as the Front. WTH?

Rear differential carrier bearing races finally came in. I have been lucky in finding the O.E. parts. Sometimes it takes a while to find them.

Rear end is in place. Waiting for the rear seals. The funny thing is, the NOS seals marked "Rear" for the GTB, only fit on the front. The rears are smaller and have a metal dust shield. Got them from MAC's auto parts online. OH, and YES that is an old school Coors keg I am using for a jack stand.... :lol: :lol:
