I think your right, it almost looks too thin to be a crank handle. It's the same thickness as the correct lug/jack handle I need.

Got my beam narrowed 3.5" and wheels widened to 15x8s and 15x6s. Decided to go with wide steelies instead of the polished 5 spokes. Not sure yet what color I'll paint them yet.

Had this rear apron latch cut out of another car and welded it onto the aftermarket rear apron I have. Still need to grind the welds and line up the decklid better.

Been working on the bug again. Got some shock towers, welded them to the beam and shortened the leaves. Painted the beam again, painted the frame head, steering box and bolted the beam back on.

Cleaned up the tie rods and shortened them about an inch and tapped the ends. May need to shorten them a little more. Going to change driver side tie rod ends.
