The gold beam was under the bus when I bought it.

But it is too narrow (mounted inside the framrails), as I cannot mount shocks anymore.

Hence the new beam..

Any good website to buy the 44-63 front brake cilinders/pads cheaply, as they are way too expensive in the Netherlands.

thanks

sadly not muc done last week.. Busy at work, and had to pick up another project.

Also still waiting for the urethande bushings to come in to finish the airbeam.

Now on a dillema

either complete the singlecab, or do this 52crotchcooler in between. Needs complete heater channels replaced and missing parts, but way cool to drive this season.

whatever I choose, you will see it at mai's buildoff
