Brake mounts are finished. I started planning out to do the pocketing cuts and shit started getting way too complicated so I just eyeballed em, having a CNC here would be awesome. I'm not a fan of tooling marks unless they are super even (like a CNC), so I blasted the pockets and gave everything else the brushed treatment. I noticed one of the forks is weeping fluid so rebuilding those will be up next.

Thank you. These Grimeca calipers use a different pad. I'm planning on running Ferrodo Platinum pads

Got the paint cut and buffed. I burned through a tiny spot on the tail but it polished out well enough that I'm cool with it, also some flaws in the stripes on close inspection but not bad for first time doing that or the polish.

What media did you use on the pockets.... 90 grit AO or did you use glass? I wanted to machine pockets also on my rearset adapters but decided to punch them right through for the same reason you mentioned... no cnc here just a Craftex CX600 (almost identical to a Grizzly G-0704) The hangers look really nice Doc... nice clean lines. I made custom hangers by hand using 7075 T6 but their just flat .250" stock, I plan to remake them similar to what you have done using .500-.750" 7075 T6. What type of aluminum did you use? I just (finally) bought a half decent compressor (18 cfm @ 90) but am waiting to buy a blast cabinet. The rearset adapters are in the process of being wet sanded/polished and aren't finished yet... keep up the excellent work,

Cheers,
Doug
