    It's not finished yet but you'll get the idea....
    The front is still to come down about an inch and maybe up a fraction at the rear....

    Enkei 5 spokes by Flat4.
    Had to fit a 3" narrowed beam to tuck them in on the front though....

    That looks very tasty indeed, gotta love a low low-light.

    Sorry to side track your post a little here, I noticed that you had some insulation below the roof of your carport and was wondering how effective that was for keeping the heat down on an open carport.

    I have been thinking of doing the same when I build a carport so your feedback could help me make up my mind.

    Works a treat! stops condensation forming too. It's just the thin sheet stuff, comes on a huge roll....

    Just wondering, if you are running a 3 inch beam, is that an Indian Auto beam? I know INdian does 3 inch beams called boneshakers or something like that. If so, are you running a sway bar? apparantly there are still sway bars available for beams narrowed up to 3 inches. Im considering narrowing my beam which already has adjusters and drop spindles, because the spindles add a little bit of track (bout 1/2 inch either side) but i dont want to run a beam with out a sway bar. How does your bus handle with the narrowed beam? any unpleasant very noticeable differences other than the usual lowered bus haggard stiff ride?

    Dropprd spindles

    Mafu and 62 deluxe ,just a question about your dropped spindles, did you get them from the states and how good is the ride with them? I've got a 68/69 balljoint front end on my splitty with adjusters and at the height ive got it at the ball joints run out of travel and i'am trying to decide what way to travel,either go back to k/L front end or dropped spindles for the balljoint front end. Cheers Dean
