These were delivered to me as scribed outlines on 3/16" steel plates, so I have been working to cut them out with a jigsaw (note the scraps and shavings on the floor) and then using the bench grinder to get them closer to final dimension. It's a complete, noisy, messy, sweaty pain, especially this week.
Tomorrow, I hope to get the second plate ground to rough dimension and to cut out the secondary plates for the Brembos. I'm also going to work on pressing out the bearing races from the front knuckles, and installing new bearings and hubs.
Down the road, I need to test-fit the calipers on these brackets to make sure it will all go together. No doubt, there will be additional work needed to make everything fit well. Then, final cleanup, paint and assembly!
