    I forgot about Josh’s beam…. yeah… pretty baller.. ? hard to beam aluminum…. Matt… Can we do a carbon fiber beam?

    We could do a CF beam…that would be next-level fo sho!!!  Probably not torsions though..too brittle…they would more than likely break.

    I finished the semaphore resto yesterday. I drilled out the original pivot pins and had to make new ones. Step machined .116 to .098 and drilled the ends with .077 so that they could be flared like a rivet. Pain in the ass!!! Original lenses too. After a lot of clean up they look nice. I had to order the brass bulb holders that go in the lenses, then we can install them.

    Whoa….boomshakalaka Franz!  You guys do rock…those look amazing!

    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 got it  😉

    Mirror-like 304 stainless shock towers are incoming as well.  😉

    Do you guys have a good photo of the KCW logo with the Beetle silhouette?  If you’ve got the logo file from whoever cut the big one in your back lot, that would be really good!  If not, a good straight-on photo will do.

    Thanks!

    Tom.. This beam is going to be over the top… Better than your expectations could possibly have dreamt up when we first started talking about this “driver” project…. ?

    Yeah baby!!!  😆

    Just thinking.  If we lasercut the logo, it’ll have to be the KCW with the Beetle silhouette over it, as the old English logo is too intricate to cut.

    I could laser etch the old English logo after the parts are cut though if that interests y’all.  You guys can pick…just laying out some options. 🙂

    Yep I can do that no problem.  I think the KCW would look good between the tubes as well, so we’ll go with that.
