    cheers choonga. i'd be able to make you a jig for it off my mates r31 diff in his corolla. probably cost a few hundred but it'd all depend on how long it takes. also you've gotta make sure that you don't heat it up like you said. weld a bit on one side then got to a different area and weld that. if it gets warped it'll probably leak oil once you're done haha

    pm me if you're interested.

    I can give it a go, I charge by the hour and I would just do the time consuming part of using a jig, chopping off the old mounts and tack welding them onto the new housing. Then you can get anyone you like to weld it up. I wont charge you for making a jig either.

    After chopping and welding mounts you will need to get it straightened. Mine was at least 20mm out of round when finished. A good diff shop or crash repair place can straighten housings.
