Stopped back by again this afternoon to see how things went and got a couple more pictures.

These pictures show the differential mounting ear that was modified by overlaying a second stamping on top of the original to double the wall thickness.

The tech was proud of the fact that you have to really look close to see the difference. When the job is finished, it's important to him that it looks "factory". My kind of guy!
