definitely D44 Spindles. Jury is still out on the beams. looks like a really bad d44 knuckle conversion. the adjuster cam doesn't sir flush on the beam. my guess is someone drilled out the D35 upper balljoint to fit the D44 cam/balljoint, then cut off the lower ear and welded a D44 lower balljoint ear. If executed properly its a great setup. the D35 third member is nearly as strong as the D44, but the D44 knuckles/spindles/hubs, are much stronger than D35.

My dad and I finished a sample piece (now using it for the end piece) for the back. Going to tie it together in the middle. Any suggestions on how to mount the fuel cell? We are thinking aluminum straps around the top but I want to see how you guys have done it too.

Tacked up the rear end. Now just need to make a couple more tubes and then I need to learn how to tig lol. Going to have to do something weird with the filler like go through the tire or preferably get a different one and splice it.
