Coming along great - fun following your thread. I do like the wood, a clear stain would really highlight that grain, but then I'm partial to preserving the natural highlights of wood.

Thanks!! We are going with clear. We think the bright wood grain will help it look larger in such a small area. We are also going with a satin clear finish just to help hide scratching since its such a high traffic area. I joined a floor refinishing forum just to get pointers on what products to use and how to use them. All the holes we glued in pieces of wood dowel rods, we got a latex wood filler so it will stay flexible and hopefully wont pop out with all the flexing while driving, and we are using a oil modified poly-urethane satin for the finish. Supposedly the oil modified poly-urethane is stronger than the water based poly-urethane. I guess only time will tell ?? They recommend 3 coats. First 2 coats a day apart, then wait at least 3 weeks for the 3rd and final coat.

Christmas in June

I received my Tom Woods Driveshafts today. They look great and the front bolted right up. (Im waiting on parts to do the rear) I want to say how easy and great it was to work with them, I got quotes from 3 local shops and 2 online shops. Tom Woods was $400 cheaper than 3 of the shops and $500 cheaper than the other 2. They even through in the bolts for the flanges and straps & bolts for the yokes. They spent a long time on the phone with me going over everything to make sure the order would be correct, after I paid they made them and shipped them the next day and I received them in 2 days. The packaging was excellent. I wont know how long they last but I doubt I will have problems because they have a pretty good reputation.

These are the shock mounts and spring perches I used. I had to drill the spring perch to 5/8 for the pin to fit. I also had to grind 1/4 off the shock spacer to fit the shock mount, I just took a little off each side (spraying with water along the way so I didnt melt the bushing) doing a little at a time until the shock fit the mount.
