Default Re: Type 3 VolksRod

Started on the modifications to the front beam for the air ride tonight. Mostly just getting metal out of the way for the control horns and bags and such...

I also tried doing a little turning on the splined stub axle. It is hard stuff, but it did turn down. I need to get it down to a press fit inside the trailing arms.

I will be adding a brace back in to replace the lower tube that I cut away. Don;t want to go to all the trouble to stick with teh heavier Type 3 parts and then compromise the strength of the beam housing.
