Front Axle Build

We're starting the front axle build with a $200 surplus stock Chevy Dana 60 housing that was never even used. The rust and scratches are from three decades of sitting in a surplus yard. Unfortunately, we're going to have to spend some coin at Dynatrac having the inner Cs turned about 8 degrees, but luckily the spring perch-to-spring perch width of this stock Dana 60 is okay for Matilda. If cutting the tubes and moving the centersection would have been necessary, we could've tacked a few hundred more dollars onto the build.
