only things that i can remeber to do is to make sure to make the drilling of the holes a 3 or 4 step process - EG - step the bits up bigger and bigger till you get to the right size. AND FOR THE RECORD, 35/64 is the correct completed size to seat the lugs. too big a bit will burn it out fast. lastly, dont forget to mill the back of the plates flat just enough so the lugs seat properly @ 90 degrees. if you dont, then your lugs will be crosseyed :banghead: . i would also recommend doing the bearings while youre in there seeing how they go bad so often anyway. throwing 15's and 28 or 29's on there will only ruin older bearings quicker. good luck to all with this project. AND HAVE PATIENCE!!! dont drill the sh** out too fast. you WILL regret it!!
