    I’m sure we have some decklid mounts here. Don’t buy any.

    I have a 4 tab hood out back on my vert that Creig was gonna buy…if its better than yours we should trade.

    Hey Matt, on the left shocktower that we were talking about  😉  Can we put the original beam number “1131492”  in the middle with the other stuff.

    You want that shitty hood fixed too…. Damn this blue one is nice and 4 tab….. But from a 59 I am guessing. I need the head against the wall emoji right now….

    I paid $650 for that stupid hood too.  The guy on samba promised me that it was a pre-58 hood but obviously when you looked underneath at the ribs, it was clear I got screwed on the purchase.     I hate getting bamboozled on Samba.      I had to pay $80 to ship that on Greyhound too and had to drive to Chicago to get it.      I am pissed all over again.   Whatever…….you guys should find a great use for it on another project…..or hang it up somewhere.

    let me guess that keoki dude? ?

     

    Yep, should I stay away?  Any insight would be appreciated.

    Another option would be just to use a oval deck lid and patch-in the vents.   Leave off the rain gutter things inside to make more room and better air flow.

    These repops are pretty legit. 1/3 of the price and strait. Keep the rain tray. It fits with IDF or dellortos.

    Order one if you guys feel this is the way to go.  I will bring some cash with me next week to reimburse you.

    Oh yeah…. Looks like they hammered them in about 1/4″ and brazed a piece of metal over em..  then combination of hammering and welding.. made for warpage and messed up 1/4’s

    I guess my next move is going to be to fix the bottom of that shitty hood you want on your rig..  😉  😉   The 59 hood is all different up there by the hinge mounts…  I am glad we are gonna get a new decklid.. thats great!    after the hood.. the body is about handled…  😉  😉

    When I get back from Durango I am gonna get the pan body worked and painted so it is sitting in the clean shop when Tom gets here next week….  all shiney and all black.   He can play with parts and what not while he is here…

    I thought Toms last beam was the SHIT… This one is going to be THE SHIT!!!  polished stainless steel tubes and shock towers.. all tig welded to perfection… How about the uprights??  Did you have all metals cut them out of polished plate?  or… is Franz gonna have to polish em?  Best Beam On Earth…. bboe works for all kinds of things.. 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉
