Where we left off, Brian and the boys at Temecula Rods & Customs had rehabilitated the Chevy's framerails and tacked the crossmember components in place. Since then, all modifications were made for proper airbag and steering clearance. The whole unit has now been fully welded to the frame. If you're familiar with a typical MII spring hat, you'll notice in this photo that the side supports are minimal--they're new sections made from steel to allow the airbag to expand without coming in contact. The 1/2-inch lip on the framerail was trimmed for the same reason.
