When I first saw this I was going to post a picture of the one I done. But I didn't want to spoil your fun. But you have seemed to forget about this.

So......

no offense Phizinza but you dont have to fill the entire housing with weld.It looks bad and isnt much stronger than properly welding it..not to mention uses a TON of rod...

Thats ok, Done this one two years back. Never had seen a welded diff before then and just thought we'd keep on going. Put that diff through some hard work and never had a problem so I can't see it being a waist. I would prefer to have a well done (over done) job then something on the edge.

wow serious overkill on the welds...

u need about 1/4 of that welding. use nickel arc welding rod (strongest arc rod available they use if for welding anything with impurities in it)

but yea, it should work
