Backing Plates Retro Fitted

Mike ordered new backing plates from Subaru, rather than using the old ones that came with the used wheel hubs. The new ones arrived, but they needed to be adjusted to fit the Wilwood brakes on the 818. Mike removed the unnecessary front halves of the plates by cutting them off with a circular hand saw at the soldering points. He then used the included template to cut two notches out of the tops of the plates. He repainted them black and attached them to the hubs. Next up, attaching them to the rear suspension, but we’re waiting to get the new bearing seals to finish it all up.
