The brakes and wheels are gorgeous Bill. Absolute jewelry.

I wanted to bump this outstanding build in case any of the new members have not seen what incredible work Mr. Davis has done so far.

I agree when I came back to this site his build was the first I looked at.

It's truly incredible!

It only took me 2 days to go through the whole thread, but I did it!


Being a mechanic by day, I notice a lot of rights and a couple things that aren't so correct.  I must say, I am very impressed.  The only thing I really have to disagree with is the front struts.  Although they look beefy enough, the spindle looks a bit thin and the strut a bit too vertical.  


Don't think that I'm nit picking your build.  I build too, so I know the challenges and compromises that need to be made in order to build something.


I love everything about it.  I'm going to be showing everyone I know this build.  You are certainly inspiring me to get the lathe that I've been putting off for a long time.

Hey, Bill- I hadn't realized you had posted some updates. Can't say anything more than what has already been said, but you know how I feel about your work. While it might take you some time to finish, this is going to be one bad project once completed (shoot, your I individual parts have more in them than most of us mere mortals have in completed projects, haha)!

Great work on the rotors and calipers!
