Got the basic shape of the bracket components cut out today using the angle grinder (which totally sucked to do). I will finish the shape tomorrow using a bandsaw and benchtop grinder. Unfortunately, both of these tools currently still reside at my parents' house (I need to make room in my garage for the bandsaw and I need to buy my own benchtop grinder).

Paid a visit to my parents today. While I was there, I took advantage and ground the brackets to final shape on their benchtop grinder.

Here is what the final assembly will look like in metal

Here are the parts progressing slowly (I would take breaks and switch which piece I was working on; they would get really hot and I forgot my gloves)

Just put in an order for all of the hardware I will need for my brake brackets and calipers. That, and some slightly thinner metal that I need in order to properly space the bracket. Once that comes in, I can weld the brackets together and install them on the axle.
