Glad to hear things are going good with the kart. True, its only minor
about the brake drum, as it will only take some time in order to get
it sorted.
If your onto finishing and painting, then you definately must be well
on the way to getting it sorted.
I was at the stage you are at, and have drove the kart, without brakes
and any pedals!, just a cable from the engine as accelerator!
Best of Luck.
Do send on them pictures.

> Back to the main kart !! The majority of the machine is completed as far as the pedals are constructed and installed with the first coat of primer going on this weekend
