    You know that old saying, "Measure twice, cut once." Yeah well, I tend to mess up regardless of how many times I measure.... I ended up welding on the 9" UCA Truss not even close to even. I don't know what possessed me, but I welded it directly over the pumpkin. Needless-to-say, the pumpkin is not centered on the axle. *SLAPS SELF IN FACE*. So I had to backtrack and grind off the truss so I could weld on the Spring perches. I'm gonna try and finish up all the brackets on the 9" tomorrow. Oh.... and this is my workspace.


    Perches are welded on at 13*. I'm trying to eliminate any kind of vibes.


    Maxx, this is for you.


    I've officially run out of space in my apartment. I have boxes everywhere. So much in fact that I don't even have the space to store my suspension pieces. It's over at my girlfriends place in her basement closet.

    Got the LCA mounts and spring perches welded up. Gonna setup the calipers. brackets, and try and get the truss burned in tomorrow. Might even start on the plumbing.




    Almost set the apartment complex on fire. Lit all the excess acetone on the ground on fire. Had to make a dash for the fire extinguisher, as you can tell from all the chemical compound on the ground.

    Got the rest of the suspension brackets welded on this afternoon. Spent an hour searching for the spacers and nuts and bolts for the axle shaft retainers. Went through everything. Got a few places left to look tomorrow. But, gonna weld on the caliper brackets and do the brakes tomorrow.

    lookin good man.
    if you still have the old drum backing plates, just cut the 4 bolt rectangular section out of the middle of them. that way you know it's the proper thickness. when you go to tack those ballistic caliper brackets on put the pads in place, mount the rotors on the axle shafts with one or 2 lug nuts and make sure your pad sits flush with the rotor or else you'll have uneven pad wear. I wouldn't know this from experience or anything . Oh, and the screw valve cover on your shielding gas bottle for your welder is the same size as the axle tube on the 9" where the bracket mounts to. so you can use that to trace a line on the backet and grid away. i wish i would have known that on my first bracket instead of the second one. would have saved me a lot of time. grind a little, dry fit, grind a little more, dry fit, grind a little more..... yadda yadda yadda...... it sucked!

    yup I believe it. I actually bought some spacers that fit perfectly in there, so I get to sell the hole drum brake kit on ebay and make back a few dollars. Thanks for the advise.

    hmm painting brake rotors, that looks like a great idea
    This person should be taken as seriously as a heart attack while piloting a zeppelin over a bacon factory, which is the most serious of heart attacks, because if that zeppelin crashes into that bacon factory all of us will be without bacon and that simply will not do.

    Why did you paint the rotors? They were new and looked good already. All the paint is going to come off where the pad contacts the rotor anyway. They'll end up looking like shit in the end.

    I know the pads are just gonna peel off all the paint where they contact the rotor. I didn't want the rest of the rotor to get all that surface rust. It was just easier to paint the whole thing than tape it off.

    sand the paint off the rotors, don't let the brake pads do it. The paint gums up the pads and makes a mess of everything.

    not to mention the coefficient of friction of a painted suraface is much lower than an unpainted suface. so have fun not being able to stop when you think you can. but if your going to keep the paint you might as well wax or armour all them to keep em shiny

    the numbers i could find:

    non painted: 0.78
    painted: 0.39
