Needs a subie swap no doubt. I could use this low light in my life.

Can’t wait to see this one looks like the right direction.John JonesModeratorOctober 27, 2018 at 7:09 amPost count: 11220
well we dug out parts from other partial beams and such so we could leave the original beam in tact…. 😎 It does have the ghia only sway bar on it still…8-)
So I need to build my dropped spindles and get that shit painted so I can assemble it!!! 😎 Andy keeps saying he wants to help me with it… but his hands are full on his SUBI project…..8-) 😎 😎

JJ got his 2” beam assembled spindle to spindle.
We spent tonight on masking the Fuchs off for detail paint.. 😎😎John JonesModeratorOctober 28, 2018 at 10:57 amPost count: 11220
Another good day of ghia stuff…. Check out those plates some one installed, I am guessing they did that instead of changing the bad tranny mounts..8-)
Chris doesn’t know he needs to get that shock boss off before blasting… 8-(
And as weird as it may sound coming from me… I am glad I did not cut up the original beam or springs or anything to build this narrowed beam….. 😎 a good stock beam has gotten expensive… I used to just cut em up…. 8-(

Thats tape smart guy…. I detailed em black like usual…. Also got my torsions and spring plates off and notched, prepped and some shake and shoot painted on em…. almost like a kit to assemble now… 😎
