You've made my day, OI, with that answer. I was really hoping that the 'good' old shocks were one way, because these definitely are.

Thank you Dozer. With heavier tin, I just use a heavier hammer. The best I can do is get the tin close enough to flat so it's safe to use body filler.

We are all forgetting to factor in that even a 360 probably has 200 horse-power, so you will have a hundred extra horses to play with.

I hope you're right OI. They feel good, but only one way. The other way they freewheel. I picked up another set at a swapmeet and they work the same.

My opinion Laz, is go into 'paint' again and add the bottom strip under that middle piece you made. It would look more finished, in my mind, anyhow. Add picture 2 and picture 4 together.

Yes OI, a wee bit. I'm hoping that if I add some Lucas sealer to the rear-end oil I'll be OK. The other side was all right, so I didn't order any seals.
