Slinger did mine previously (YPVS reeds into LC). Had to weld the inside side of the inlet up before machining I believe to prevent from breaking through.

Brake calipers are stripped and cleaned and painted, All new seals, pistons and pads, New rubbers and pins, I might not use there, I have a set of Blue spots that I will fit for now, The LC brakes were never that good :)

all metal has been picked up from the powdercoaters, Looks absolutely fantastic, Waiting on the crank and cylinders which are on the way, Then its time to get it all together. Ill build the motor and do the squish and send the head out for correction, The LC has a very, very safe squish, Lets tighten it up and take away some of that reliability :smt033 :smt023

Man, you really do nice clean work. That thing will look awesome in your living room!

What do you use to paint the calipers?

You're going to replace that cracked Neutral switch cover right?
A modest "high" can be obtained by listening carefully to the sound of a 2-stroke hitting the fat part of the powerband while inhaling cool fall air tainted by the exhaust scent of VP-C12 and Golden Spectro, mixed at 24:1.

I just a satin brake caliper paint on the calipers,

Im not changing the switch cover, Its sealed with an o-ring, not a gasket, It wont leak.

Famous last words. "It wont leak"
I just replaced one that you couldn't see the crack until you put a flashlight on it. I thought it was the Sprocket seal so I cleaned all around it with brake clean and left it overnight to determine where the leak was coming from. Sure enough, the neutral switch was a leaking like a Senator from California.

Just saying, you have replaced and cleaned to the n'th degree. Why not replace an $18 part that is obviously defective?
