    Hello Jeremy
    I am at the primer stage of my project. Can you give me some advice on slick sand? I have everything stripped and cleaned up, and repairs done. Do I have to skim coat it with some thing or can I just slick sand? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Jeremy,
    Was wondering what size Mickie Thompson you have there. Ive been having problems finding 50 series tires big enough for my 10 inch front 12 inch rear wheels, any input would be appreciated, Thanks Evilio

    Hello Jeremy !
    I read your "how-to" article on rebuilding a differential and found it to be incredibly well done. !
    I am up in Edmonton and want to have someone tear my diff apart and go through it properly to R&R it. Unfortunately I am anal retentive and do not have the time to do it properly so I will not do it half-assed ! That leaves me with the option of sending it to someone who can/would do a proper and thorough job of it.
    I have a 72 big block and recently rebuilt my engine after years of dragging the project along simply because I wanted to do it right. After dyno'ing it recently it puts out just shy of 600 ft/lbs of torque. The diff I have in the car is a 3.36 but I recall hearing a whine back when the car was running. I wish I had done a better job of diagnosing it back then but didn't as I had more pressing issues to contend with at the time. Now I am about to drop the engine back in and am second guessing myself as I don't want to go to all the trouble only to have another problem develop with the rear end. As well Ii have noticed some leakage at the pinion seal so I am talking myself into rebuilding the diff.
    So, long story short, do you know of anyone in relative proximity here out west that you would recommend sending a diff to for a proper tear down and rebuild? I know of Dyer and Ramadei but I have a feeling that shipping alone would be way too expensive to warrant that.
    Comments,opinions, recommendations?

    Thank you, sincerely !!!!

    Rick

    Hello Jeremy. As usual the project is coming along great. I wanted to know if you could give me a list with the products you are using by brand and type of product. The idea is to know what product you used for what. At the moment im working on the bird cage and i wanted to know what and which products you are using for primer, anti rust, paint remover for fiberglass and any other product you have used in the process and on what you used said product. Thanks for the help.

    PS i tried posting pics of my project directly to the thread and it wont let me unless i have them set up on a server.
