picked up some new hardware for the spindle to bracket, and my uncle got me 5ea 14mm x 2.0 x 30mm Allen head bolts for the caliper to mount bracket

I picked up the metal to build the bracket as well

my mock up bracket is made out of some pine wood
I ended up making 3 wood mounts overall
make them till I was happy with the fit

I just have to trim the outer edge of the mounts but thats not a big deal

I painted one of the z06 caliper brackets today, gloss black

and so I mounted them suckers up on one wheel

test fit, I have to get some different size lug nuts, so I only have 3 on the wheel right now

and the caliper is hand tight to the adapter bracket.....I need to buy a 14mm allen head tool

twist my arm, I have to go tool shopping tomorrow, lol
