    That car was great in its original configuration and it sounds like you may be bringing it back to it’s former glory.  I have

    been studying this exact car for ideas for my ’73 Standard I recently acquired.  Keep updating us on it.

    Pat or John,

    Could you guys measure the Gerson metal bed piece that goes from the wall below the rear window to the large rear bed sections for me.  I am trying to see if they are long enough for my short single cab project.

    Very tasteful improvement.  Nicer but not too nice so you can go collect more rock chips with Corporate

    I am going with a class 11 style poser car. I am building it to run forest roads and such out here, and for the unsanctioned Franz Off-road Run. Just don’t want to be the guy that breaks down. Trying to build this once and build it well enough to take some beating without breaking the bank. All in fun.

    Who sells the new Puma beams?  I have a guy locally that has a stock one I am going to look at this weekend. Hopefully it is straight.

     

    Does anyone one have any experience using the radiused ball joints?  I used a set many moons ago for a lowered street car but wasn’t sure how well they hold up offroad.

    When you pull out your old trans compare the old nose cone to the one on the new trans. I am assuming you currently have a bug nose cone in the car with that particular mount welded to the pan.

    Am I being picky or is it hard to find a straight front beam?  I disassembled 5 bug beams (2 link pin and 3 ball joint) I had kicking around here and everyone of them was bent. Any ideas where I can find an original German ball joint beam that isn’t bent to hell?  Or is it better to just get a new beam?  Wasn’t sure if the new ones are very strong

    The pan has been converted from the split case front mount. You won’t know if you have a bug or bus nose cone until you pull out your old one to be sure. It is super easy if you need to swap nose cones.

    Looks great. Can’t wait to see the outer shell get some color
