Wheels and glare shield fixings

Mounted the wheels. It required 6 mm extra of shimming by using one 3 mm washer on each side in addition to the dust covers. Without the washer on the inside, the brake pads would lock the wheel, even when pushed all the way in, and without both of them the lock pin wont engage the nut. Strange. I used Biltema wheel bearing grease and Biltema Brake cylinder paste.

Started with the mods from Airward for glareshield, tank, windshield and panel removal. There will be some refitting of angles and stuff to get all those screws in correct places. Not too much, but getting the kit earlier would be easier.
