Well a little more progress this last week. Motor mounting plate is now fixed with the brake disk and caliper mocked up.

Time for some update photos I’ve made paper templates for the hood and body side panels. The first side panel came out ok and I was real proud of myself until it was held up with the light reflecting on it. My english wheel work needs to be improved I should have used a lower crown bottom roller and a lot less pressure would have given a better result for sure. The next one will be better.
The brake master cylinder and slave are installed and plumbed. Throttle cable is hooked up but I need to make end stops so I don’t push it past reality trying to get more out of it. Test drive some time this week than Tieton V here we come.

Wow! Al
That has really come a long way since the last pictures.
Nice Rod. Looks like you'll make it under the wire.
See you there!

Hi Al
Please give me a heads up on what you did to your flex lines on your Calipers?
What fittings did you use to get to your hard line and where did you find them?
How is your body coming along?
Have you had your test drive yet?

Brian,
I replaced the fittings that came with the kit and used standard brake line 3/16” double flair fittings with hydraulic tubing. The master and slave cylinder ports are 1/8” pipe so you will need to locate a 1/8” male pipe to 3/16” DFF fittings.
The body panels are coming along and quite a challenge at this point I’m not sure the will be welded them together or attached by some other means.
The first drive will be this week for sure.

Thanks Al
I have lots 1/8" pipe to 3/16 Inverted flare fittings, but my master and callipers all have tube thread with Banjo style bolts???
Bleeder was also tube thread luckily, as unlike cars the callipers do not come in left and right (motorcycle would only require one)
Thus, after making mirror image brackets to run on each side, I was able to flip the bleeder screw to the the opposite side of the caliber so they will both face upward (right & left side).
so I will go hunting this week for a fitting replacement.
Easiest solution would be to lose the flexible lines all together and use male tube to 3/16 inverted flare and have hard lines every where!
That just dawned on me while typing this post, as I really have no need for flex lines anyways, as nothing moves!
Thanks
Brian

Finally started the hood what fun for sure. Made a fixture to shape the hinges First bent a 90 degree placed that against the lip on the fixture and proceeded hammered it over the top and down the front, than placed a tube on that channel and hammered it around another 15 degrees or so. I didn’t show the final roll ever to finish the shape I used a 1/8” drill rod for that. The last 2 shots are the start of forming it to the rest of the body. First half left side almost there.

Albert lies. You are a bad man. Really like your approach to the hood construction. The hinges look
Amazing. Super clean. I would like to make a couple of suggestions on how you could improve your
Process, but I can't think of one thing

Hi Al
By the time on your post I see you were burning the midnight oil too (was working on my axle).
Your hood looks Great!
My Aluminum did not come covered, which may be a bit of a finishing problem.
Keep up the good work.
And thanks for posting pictures.
Brian

Hood attachment was my priority today. I will have some final shaping to do on the hood but that will be on a back burner for now. The box and seat is next followed by paint. OMG12 days to go
