Uploaded soem more pics today...

Here are the photos of the front mud shield/brake hose bracket that I made, installed.

Then after that are some photos of the stainless steel brake lines (from the hose to the caliper) that I bent.

Even after the rear caliper brackets were machined, the rotors weren't perfectly centered inside the calipers. They weren't off by much... 1/100th of an inch here, 15/1000th of an inch there... Just enough to cause fit issues with the pads.

So I took some spare swivel ball pin shims and cut them down to create some shims for the calipers. Not as elegant of a solution as I would have liked, but it will do until I can figure out a way to make something better.

Here are some before and after pics as well as the cut down shims...

Not kidding at all.

It was literally enough to cause a fit issue with the pads. I couldn't believe it either. Seems ridiculous to have to shim it down to that kind of accuracy, but I'd rather do that than have my brakes dragging until a sufficient amount of pad has worn off. In fact, in the case of one caliper, I had to shim the lower end 0.020 over... I couldn't even get one of the pads in until I did it.

Upgraded the front axle shafts; so, I had to swap out the front Stub Axles, Hubs, and Drive Flanges to accommodate the higher spline count. Once I got everything together, I realized that the clearances weren't quite right and I couldn't get the circlips onto the axle shafts.

So, off came the drive flanges... I ended up removing about 2mm of material off of the face of the drive flanges so that I would be able to install the circlips and have some degree of end play.
