    Stardinero75, depending on how wide your 8"axle is you can easily swap the rear axles to 4 lug ones. The Mustang II, with the V6 or V8 came with 4 lug 8" axles. In fact, the 8" I have right now is 4 lug. I'll have to find 5 lug axles or re drill the 4 lug to 5 lug to use it in the Stude.

    The neck/head is a scrap piece of exhaust pipe I had laying around. I cut a few slots in one end and hammered it shut to form the head then cut a slot for the mouth and drilled a couple of holes for the nostrils. I have a boat load of old shock washers which I used for the eyes. I did cheat a little on the eyes....I mashed them in the middle with a ball peen hammer to make them bulge out (more like Sea Turtle eyes).
