Well making some progress.... but I’m having a steering issue that I’ve started another thread on in the discussion section. Here’s the link: http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/showthr...784#post534784

Managed a few hours in the garage today.

I got the passenger side ball joint nuts welded to the A arms,

The calipers mounted, and

The master cylinder is mounted.

It started getting dark out, so the pedal will be finished up another day.

I bought new rims for the 110 mm bolt pattern, but they are too wide for what I want. I guess they go on the shelf for a future project. I’m having a hard time finding 110mm rims that will accommodate a tire smaller than 19” based on the frame dimensions.

Spent a few hours in the garage today. The brakes are another step further.
