front beam
« on: August 24, 2009, 04:26:50 AM »
I have a 1970 Camper I'm in the process of redoing. I noticed a crack on the front beam around the area where the steering arms pivot. Has anyone fixed this area before or would a new beam be a better option? I see a lot of places that sell beams for bugs. Where can I get one for a bus?

I would browse ebay or junkyards near you. You could contact KCW at they do a lot of beams. Or you may want to contact an experienced welder about having them fix it.
