That is definitely a lot of work in not a lot of time.

Be sure to deal with that lack of fuel line before you start top coating the pan. You’re gonna need to cut open the tunnel to fish the new line in.

QUESTION … am I correct in thinking this beam has been hacked ? in the first pic you can see . it looks like the steering horns or steering stops have been hacked off . or is it just missing rubber top ? it just looks like they were cut off

Yes they have. But it`s what needs to be done with a lowered front end.
