An industrious dunce is often more successful in life than his learned neighbor.
I have one spare spring plate in the event I somehow screw up the two that are currently on the subframe. The one I worked on yesterday is toast and has been tossed into the scrap bin.
Doing this conversion was a lot more work than I'd planned - especially where modifying parts that are marketed to 'fit' together was required.
Next steps - I'll take this apart, prep the spring plates for paint and, weather permitting (supposed to be 63ºF on Tuesday), I'll get them painted and then let them dry/cure over a long period of time while I sort out the pan situation.
