I got a spare early beam from a friend, he had no idea of the condition so I disassembled it and found the brake components to be fairly new!

And a quick pic of my bumpers I need to straighten out, I can't find a late rear bumper to save my life so these will do. Oh and Merry Christmas everyone!

Thanks! Its mcode destination was St.louis Missouri. I think it spent some time in the surrounding states. It ended up back in Missouri, now to Michigan.

A little update, all suspension and drivetrain completely rebuilt and new. Drove it for the first time yesterday! Not real far, or fast. I still need to add my door tops and windshields. A super short vid at the bottom, if you want to see me rolling in the driveway for 15 feet. Laughing
