ST2 Build

Hello, I have been building a ST2 but have lost steam for the last year or so. I am now thinking of getting back into it, what frustrated me before was the driveline. The print says to use Geo Metro Hubs, well... I can't for the life of me find these hubs. What else could I use? It would be nice if I could just go to Napa,pepboys or autozone and buy them. Any suggestions? Pictures would be great.

This is the frame thus far...

Cool, I would love to do a project like this............
I'm sure you've tried the junkyards, right? I know there are a ton of them around here. Last summer I scrapped a metro, I would have given them to you.


Heres a driverside for 25.00

Thanks! I think what I need is the first link. We don't have any metros in the junk yards around here. I think I called every place within a 100miles.

You can use Cavalier axles and outer bearing housing. The outer bearing housing mounts are easy to build. You can use the inboard CV tulips, just machine of the ends and weld on hubs to suit your center shaft.

That sounds like it could work. Do you have any pictures of hub set ups?
