setup (and simple brakes) at:

I would however suggest that you try and setup a proper steering system 
with a steering column. The best plans and details to follow would be:

I suggest you concentrate on the steering setup firstly. The brakes can be 
added at a later state. Have a look at the above plans for the steering 
setup. If you have any specific questions etc. feel free to email and ask.

Best of Luck,
