I had a batch of parts sandblasted by Bill Lewis, a local guy that does sandblasting and TIG welding for me.
Fro came over to borrow my vise and heat gun to do some work on his shotgun.
I went to Harbor Freight and bought some junk. My "junker" 1/2' torque wrench broke a few months ago so I bought a new one to replace it. These things work well for lug nuts and less critical fasteners, it was $20 with a Supercoupon! The gasket punch set got good reviews online, and I have gone without a transfer punch set for too long.
I modified a few of the brackets I had sandblasted. This is a weight for the clutch arm.
After some welding and grinding:
I modified the clutch actuator arm too. This is the before:
I cut a tube in half and hammered it to match the shape of the arm.
Metal work finished:
I modified a few of the shift linkage parts too. It's likely that nobody will notice these little details, but they will contribute to the overall look.
