Back in again, cut down the other backing plate and measured for axles. The long side can use the stock axle as a spare in a pinch but it only goes about half way through the spider. The short side will be custom all the way.
Not re-splined, long side i only cut down about an inch, so that axle will work but only half the splines are engaged. The short side is where most of the width came out. For axles i will be using Longfields, he now does custom lengths, on the hub ends i have a set of his splined blanks. But i hear that OTT does resplining.
To be different i guess, i like the panel look. It makes people say WTF? I got a lot of time on my hands/hand. If it was easier to get in the back past the B pillar i would get rid of the other door as well.
