    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 shitΒ  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-)Β  😎  😎

    Another good day of ghia stuff….Β  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-(
