which rear to use
« on: October 18, 2013, 05:15:24 PM »
I have to choices to use the stock banjo type out of the 34 ford truck or I have a mercury rear that I am told is the same as a mustang rear

I like the banjo look for  what I am building but will it work as a every day driver

or should I use the other ? :-\

The banjo is going to be tough to work with being you are going with a V8. You'll be much better off upgrading from the banjo housing.
Love building rat rods, driving mustangs, and building websites.
