    Thanks for the update. Very much appreciate it. I do like the new depot mount. Trying to decide which way to go. I have an 8.8 with 930 CVs already installed with a cobbled together mount.. My problem is the difference in axle lengths. Mine are the same left and right. I think there will be enough give but not sure. The diff cover not aligning is odd and maybe with the 28 spline stubs maybe I will not have the clearance the mount. Thanks again. Richard.

    Do I need to strip an upright?

    I have an 8.8 out of a Lincoln MK8 in my car now. I like the Z car depot rear mount and they have beefed up the front mount. What I have is cobbled together at best, home made rear with a T bird/Lincoln rear cover which won't let me get the diff low enough and a T3 front mount from an R230, like I said cobbled. Looking for a better solution. Thanks for the info. The first pic has been around a while and I like it a lot, the second is new to me, home made but better than mine and uses the explorer cover which I am not opposed to buying. FYI the T bird/Lincoln is a double front mount but not as beefy as the explorer. Thanks for the info. Richard.

    That is the first version of that I have seen. Looks nice, where did that come from. Richard.

    Are you happy with the Z car depot 8.8 mounting kit?

    Jim I am offering again. Should we send them an upright and all the stuff you have back? It would be a shame to give up at this point. It is below 20 here and I am not working on the car so we can spare the parts for a little while. Richard.
  7. Great work. EZ wire is what I used, the instructions are not so good, but it works great. You are going to love the Speed hut stuff. Looks really great, nice attention to detail. Richard.

    Any idea of time? Any idea of pricing? Getting ready to do winter upgrades. Thanks Richard.

    Agreed. I used a TTT front mount and I know it moves. Spitsnaugle, keep working, A better front mount is essential. If the design pictured used longer bolts with spacers to use the suspension mounts that would be a great start. Remove 4 bolts, put in longer ones that support the front and it could be a good design. Thinking out loud. Thanks for all the work Richard.

    Thanks for the update. Please share the failure thread what went wrong and why. Also maybe the copy link, that would be a bad turn of events. Richard. PS going to love the lift. I have had one for 15 years no idea how I did without it.

    NICE work, painting a car is a lot of work. Nice numbers the car and congrats on the baby. I can't imagine the amount of power that is. Again great work.

    If it comes down to it I have an empty strut housing (off the car) if they need it. They can make a new one test it before sending it back to you to test etc. Special stuff always takes forever. Hang in there! R

    Thanks for the kind words. Like I said, a LOT of info came from this site. Ask any questions anyone has, I will do my best to answer them. Richard.

    R134, made my own hoses. Vacuumed it out and put in 134 and the right amount of oil (8 oz I think) and works great, so far so good. HTH R
