Today I hacked up my new to me Lunette ring. It felt a bit sacrilegious, but in the end, it was a spare that another ExPo member was not using, and it is now getting used albeit in a slightly modified form.
I ground off the sides to squeeze the shaft into the receiver extension.
Fits like a glove!
Going to drill this out, and put a BIG grade 8 bolt through this. I will also be welding the end of the receiver extension tube to the shaft. Goint to heat the hell out of it then use a friends Mig to weld it up. Cast needs to be heated to bond I am told, he has welded cast before so I will listen and learn.
Oh and I drove it today for the first time since the refurb began. Got a lot of looks and a few thumbs up. It really stands out!
