don't feel bad. most of the "purists" feel that we are the scurge and should be shunned. Heck - you bastardized a /8 with a Ford powerplant, and then show pictures of Bavarian steel on a sight that is all about the Schwabians.... tisk, tisk, tisk.

All joking aside, nice ride. Did you do the powerplant conversion? what is your 5.0 producing? Transmission choice?

BTW - no bad feelings about your response to the rear diff fluid. Just looking for the specific fluid spec.
