Diff cage is basically done, need to cover up a few tube ends. I must be really bad at fixturing for welding cause it took 3 tries to get the top arm and the lower arm connected with the 2 vertical braces without it moving all over.

I had the diff cage mounted to the engine (12mm bolts just sitting in clearance hole on the engine and the diff mounted to the cage tightly. Then I clamped and tacked the vertical braces in. The first time I swear it moved an 1/8" or more after I finished the welds.

But third time was the charm (well, not charm really, more like f-it close enough!)
