So my new beam is being delivered to Kombi Haus in Sac tomorrow!

I am stoked! cheers

I posted this in the Tech section as I thought I would take some pictures of the swap as sort of a documentary of a newb swapping a beam!!!

This is going to be bad a$$. Can't wait, hopefully this weekend...

Thanks Dann,

I can't wait. So..um..like...um...what are you doing this weekend?

Anybody else?

I want to pull the fuel tank and install an electric fuel pump as well. I figure it might make things easier.

Oh and install a new pedal cluster, master cylinder, brake lines, and a shift rod bushing.

Damn, I need to make a list....

I'll be around. Kyle will be here and we are going to work on the Lancia.

Nope, still sitting in the same spot.

Have not had much time away from work, and the time I have had been spending it with family events.

I am hoping to spend some time in the garage tonight, although maybe tomorrow.

It's one last birthday night with family.

I need to get hoppin' though, Bug-O-Rama will be here before you know it.

Which reminds me, I need to call Berg and find out where my valve springs are at...

I am hoping Thursday or Friday.

I am going to throw some paint on it tomorrow.

Kind of depends on my motor build too. Lot's going on.

OK. So now that the pedal cluster is done, it's back to the front end and the beam.

So I painted the shortened tie rods, they came out nice.



And I managed to prime and undercoat the outer ends of the beam. Tomorrow I hope to get the center undercoated. I am trying to be careful and not gum up the adjusters with the undercoat.



I don't know if anyone has ever watched undercoat dry, but it is fun.

In the picture above the undercoat is still wet, but it dulls and you can see the rubber coating. FUN!

HA HA watching paint dry, literally.

This will come up later in the engine swap thread, but since you said smokin' I thought I would share.

I picked May's new exhaust today.



I think it will flow pretty well. Wink

My only decision now is big ass stinger or Fat Boy??? scratch
