Tacked it together a couple of times while 'hammer truing' it up. Then skip welded it around the perimeter to keep it from doing anything interesting. The factory 'balance weight' was on the end I didn't cut and I left it in place. Never did get it balanced. That was many thousands of miles ago.
And how many times have you answered the question “where did you have it balanced?”
I’ve done many RWD hollow driveshafts like that too.

I still want to see pictures of your ride!
