If not Vic.. Jim, if can get alum stock in the thickness you require, I can machine it on my mill with the rotary table where I can accurately machine the bolt circle as well.

Thanks for the offer Steve I'm not sure I'm even going to need some, but if I do I'll let you know

Nice Vic, certainly an upgrade in the looks department.
How do you rate the braking now?

Customs didn't think it strange that you were leaning on a 45* angle.....

Ha ha. Funny story about that. As I was going through customs they said they detected metal in my bags and wanted to know what it was. I said they were car brakes. They made me open the bag and the customs LADY says "are they for a truck?" I said "no for my car" she then said "they're a bit big for a car" I asked how she would know and she used to be a mechanic before becoming a customs officer!!! Showed her a picture of the Camaro and all sweet and she waved me through!
