theres not much slop in the cv's but I can hold the axle and inner cv and get play there, on both cv's and rear driveshaft cv. im sure the loose diff has wore those out over time. working on getting a better rear diff soon.

Should have a rear diff on the way soon thanks to Dean16v. Then ill systematically replace the worn inner cv and prop shaft cv. Also I finally had time to finish the final door card. That hex pattern really sucks to stitch... had to take a break from it. Waiting on engine rebuild stuff to come in to start on that end of it as well.

I love the stitching work! You did all of it by hand? Looks like you have a nice project going.

Its with a machine, but with this patern, there is a lot of hand work. you can sew the zig zag lines but then have to go back and hand stitch the ends to close of the hex's. there is 4 stitches on each end of a hex, and two knots per end. each panel I have blisters on the sides of my fingers from hand tying them all. lol. Contemplating making inserts for the seats, but not sure I want to bother as all my seat heaters work, and are in good condition. I will re upholster the upper trim to make it all black.
