The bore on the caliper side, that I used, was the best of the ones that I have on hand.
The lower boomerang mount pin was a wee worn, so, I made a shouldered shim for the pin.I've got a repair pin for that riveted in stock one ,but I've found that they always work loose.They also make it difficult to get a wrench on the brakeline.

I found this out after the fact but you can change out the fitting on the calipher and use the smaller size steel braided brake hose the fitting to adapt was about $10

Luckily it was only a hockey stick to the face, coulda been worse!
I'm happy I have crows feet already, no need for plastic surgery...though I often admire Kenny Rogers new look with his face surgery, kinda looks like an old drag queen in a rhinestone suitjacket.

Hows that fender comin along?

i started to scratch it up then laid on those beer induced flames but the tape is too wide for tight turns,so i need skinny tape and paint,or im just gonna mask it and do it my favorite way ,by just penning them on top of the tape and cutting em out, no rush anyways dude,still deciding if they need some more welding on it,,
hey man! your pic reminds me of that soundgarden song................."blackeye sunn''......... jocolor
