Great idea with the soda bottle brake line drip containers! How did you connect those to the brake line such that they can be free hanging?
personally wouldve left the old calipers attatched and hung that way u dont need to worry about fluid spillage... i hate the feeling of brake fluid on the skin

I didn't know JCR would put 60s in a rig. I figured it was against their company charter.

It does look nice.

It's like .5" under the bottom of the tube if that... I didn't want it any closer to the center line because the upper link mount is going to be pretty low and I wanted a little more separation.

I'm concerned about geometry as I can be. Kinda stuck with what full traction gave me frame side...
