    I just need to drill the mounting holes and paint it, and it should be good to go!

    Well... not so much.

    Turns out it is less than 5mm too large..... I don't think I can fix that, so I will have to..... I don't know.

    Thanks for the comments guys... Can't wait for the rest of the parts to arrive, it's going slowly, but at least it's getting there..

    Oh, by the way, everything I have done and will do to this case (hopefully the sleeving as well, but we'll see) is being modded 'single-handed'; as in only using my right hand... Lol. It's an interesting challenge, but since I can't actually use my left arm (anybody that read my post in the 'show us your ride' thread will remember my bike accident), I set myself a personal challenge to see if I can still do it. So far, so good.

    Hmmm... Were the 5mm holes for the mounting holes by any chance? If so, couldn't you use a washer to work around it..?

    No, I mean that the plate is 154mm wide, and the bays are 150mm wide.

    So.... I don't think I can fix it, I will have to make a new plate. My 4th one.
    I am sick of that...

    Any ideas?

    Oh, sorry... I completely misread your post there. It is a Monday after all... Lol.

    Depending on whether or not the pop-rivets are just for show or if they're holding the sides in place, I do have one suggestion. Instead of remaking the whole plate again, looking at this pic here as a base:

    Drill out the rivets on the right hand side (since that has a marginally larger area of metal next to the holes) and remove that side first. However, if the pop-rivets aren't the only thing holding this on, you may need to cut it off.

    After that, I'd suggest to mark off a 5mm to 6mm section on the right hand side of the face plate and grind it back a bit. If you aim to make the panel about 148mm wide, it allows for some extra space and it should fit quite nicely in the 150mm space.. This is exspecially important if you plan to spot-weld the panels together; spot welding tends to build up the surface, making it at least 1mm to 2mm thinker.

    This way you only end up replacing one side, not the whole thing.
