Using a plaza you get left with a pile of stuff that looks like this

The Jimp cleaning up the beam (lots of work)

With the beam cleaned up you can fit it into the end plates and assemble it in the jig.

Onc the end plates are welded on you can take the beam out of the jig and weld the insides

Next, mark out the holes for the adjusters and weld them on. (mark the position of the original holes on the beam before you cut the center out to make this step easier)

Beam installed. Nice and narrow. Still needs to be dropped a couple of inches though

Nice amount of tuck - not too much. Just right.
