looks really good. I am hoping to do a similar park brake on the standard 520 driveline.

Clear powder coat would have looked awesome like Nigel did from Engineered to Slide on his tube frame drift Hilux.

Really shows your welding skills when left raw

Here is a little trick I came up with a few years ago , it's to clean up small parts like little brackets or bolts , you take a small plastic jar , this one is a peanut butter container , drill a hole to fit the nozzle of the gun and a few holes to let the media out , it seems to work very well .

IMG_3866_zpswm8rindu.jpg

IMG_3867_zpssssnwf8e.jpg

the next thing is an old shop vac , drill a hole in the lid , put the hose in the lid and a filter on the exhaust side , this helps reduce the dust in the box to see better and helps keep the dust down in the shop , when the weather is better I set it up outside.

Getting ready to put the box back on !!!!!

got the parking brake all working , will install the cable now that I can see how it has to go to clear everything

Love the tip for blasting the small parts.  I've been using this for many, many years....works great.  But......I think if the open end with the screen was done on a jar with a lid like yours, it would be perfect!!!  I'm def going to be getting couple of jars with screw on lids. :)  ....and this is a "before" shot....only one I had that showed the cup nicely.

Looks like you're using super glue and activator?

Hi been super busy with everything else lately .
Made a cutter to countersink the fasteners for the carbon exhaust tip cover .

IMG_4195_zpss5g2lgoc.jpg

IMG_4196_zpskkxqhff7.jpg

I used a piece of tool steel ( parting tool from the lathe ) and a 1/4 inch drill bit , zip cut a slot in it and tacked the blade in.

IMG_4197_zpse7luv5zd.jpg

IMG_4198_zpsyynfml8n.jpg

Also got a new ( new to me ) tool Small milling machine , same brand as the lathe , it's old and needs some TLC , but it works ok for now , need some new cutting bits . should come in handy !!!!
