That means that you have been able to machine the grooves, wasn't to difficult ?

Please take some more pics of the work being done.
The machining work was very difficult, quite involved and had to be very precise. The diff gear splines are exceptionally hard, with an estimated hardness of 70 on the Rockwell scale. Which means they were probably at least as hard as the cutting tools used on them.

Once the car is back together the plan is to test it out. With the holiday period starting next week, I won’t be doing this for till late January.

Is this the price for the part before it was converted, or the final price after conversion?

If after, then not unreasonable for an enthusiast, less than the price of 2 sets of KO2s..!

Hmm.. maybe I should read.
I'm guessing it's price before conversion.

That would be the cost of the locker only
The cost of the R180 conversion & fitting the locker would be at least double that for most people. This is the reason I won't be doing this conversion, plus lack of easily accessible parts

It is just the cost of the locker itself. I'm not sure about the concern for parts. I did have a third axle made up in the off chance that this might be needed sometime when out bush. This would be the only part likely to give trouble but we think that unlikely.

When traveling in remote areas, you need to have a spare axle. If the rest turns out to be reliable that's all you would need.

Can't wait to see it fitted & tested!
