    Its funny how I skipped this thread a few times because it looked like an obvious spam bump. But boy am I glad I looked anyway. Very curious how this project will progress

    Putting a g50 transmission in the factory way is rather involved. There is no question this build has gotten out of hand but we don't do these things because we are smart and rational about cars.

    Marked my cut, what could go wrong!


    And out with the old!


    All this work for an extra 2 inches. The g50 torque tube is about 7lb heavier with its cast center section but should be much stronger. The trailing arm mounting ears aren't staying though but more on that later.


    Some inner sleeves for the joint.


    And LOTS of cutting, grinding, measuring, weld thru primmer painting, measuring again, and the g50 torque tube is in and even better the wheel still fits with the same alignment!


    Full bump looking SWEET!

    Things were going too well getting the new torque tube welded in so I though I would give myself another chance to screw it up by welding in adjustable roll center correction.

    Enter Fixture #2

    Mocking it up

    Number 2 Done!

    Then more reinforcement..... because everything else is over kill so why stop now! Still clears at full drop at the lowest setting should I ever put Sefari suspension on this car.

    I needed a radius for rebuilding the back seat area and since we are on a roll with overkill, I just kept going. Added a partial outer sleeve to my torque tube splice...... because I has some tubing that fit. It will make a good jack stand locator.

    Added some landing pads for some additional bracing.

    Deleted the heat tubes to get a tube past there tying the shock tower in to the inner tailing arm pickup point.

    Lots of fun coping tubes with an angle grinder.

    71CEF2F5-DA41-48BD-8F2F-7F03ED32C165

    And maximum triangle creation achieved. My welding isn't great but I'm confident at this point nothing is going to fall off. Now if the wheels end up in the right spot in the wheel well, that would be amazing!
