Old dudes... Eastwood has an instructional video with Gene Winfield that’s fun to watch. Somewhere along the way I also remember seeing a video demonstration with Bill Hines. No mask or protective equipment, real lead, smoking a cigar the entire time!That's awesome! Never heard of the unleaded technique. I remember learning about lead sleds, watching videos of old dudes with their paddles scultping Mercs. I assumed the skillset of that particular dying art would be lost. Can it be done with aluminum frames too, or just steel?
Just catching up on your build here, TJ. Love the tab mount for the rear caliper! Excited to follow through on other pages preceding this too. Great design and fabrication / engineering work as usual!Caliper Mount Rear Post
Based on the rear post location and tight spacing I decided to mount the rear caliper post onto a tab. The tab mounts with the same bolt that holds the seat support clamp.

Got lucky and ended up with just enough space.
