i talked to DSS, DennysDS, a place called ring and pinion and last a place by me called Dynotech.......no one came in under 400 $$ so to save on shipping i went with Dynotech.....I have a few buddies i work with who highly recommend them. and they were the cheapest seeing as i can save 50 $$ by not shipping. im having a pretty beefy shaft made (thats why there so expensive) to well exceed my current power levels to leave room to upgrade the motor as i can later.

Jjanke, you can still make the trunk somewhat functional. As long as the fuel cell you are using doesnt require the trunks entire real estate. I mean, unless your welding the trunk shut, should still be able to use part of it.

My 68's drive-shaft is 47 inches long center to center.
I have a 1310 u joint on one end and a 1350 u joint on the other end.
So mine would not have worked, it's too long.
Keep up the good work on your project.

wow thats really good progress! looks great!!

Im with you on the widebody, I think its the correct way to do it with the suspension you have. if you tuck the wheels in it changes the scrub radius and ackerman angle more depending on how it would have to be done. the smithperformance would be good, if you only wanted to go straight.....

There are restrictions on the gauge of steel/alum you use for the rear firewall too.

Quick google turned this up.
