Hope i dont mess it up and will post progress as i get farther it should be awsome. I know there is a search function for advice on this i just want to do it anyway and post my progress. Off to start working.

5/9

Im not rushing( although i dont have much time) its just easier if you file fast so that it files smoothly. Well im 5/9ths there almost done with the handle but i probably wont finish today since i still need four or six washers for the seatpost and handle but ill get as far as i can.

Really appreciate the progress photos. Considering your time deadline, if you didn't stop to photograph and post to the forum, you'd be done by now and had plenty of time to test it out.

I kind of knew that i wouldnt be finished before i had to go to work and i would rather take the time to show my work( it doesnt take that long anyways)

Any way i foud out that i made a very horrible error while ordering the bolts. I was going to buy for my friend his bolts for a miyata style and so had 9 bolts in my head and so i bought 9 of them just before i left for work i noticed that i dont have a miyata and never have. Its pretty much the dumbest mistake ever. So i need to go to the store again tomorrow and get one bolt and one nut and 6 washers. So with my corrections i am now 6/10ths of the way done. Since my brothers are still awake i will start on the seatpost holes now.

so timbob and I have been in disagreement. after drilling the holes are you supposed to file the holes to be square or just pound the carraige bolts in?

Looks good. Keep in mind that filing a hole square can actually move the hole a little bit. You want to make sure that you don't accidentally move a hole so far that it no longer fits the seatpost.

Best way to proceed is to file one hole square. Put all four bolts in and make sure they still line up with the holes in the seatpost. File the next hole square. Put all four bolts back in and make sure they still line up with the holes in the seatpost. Repeat for the remaining holes doing one hole at a time.

If the holes aren't lining up you can take advantage of the fact that you can move the holes while filing them square. If things are further off you can turn the square into a rectangle and still be all good. You only need two or three sides of the square (or rectangle) to be flat and in contact with the shoulders of the carriage bolt to keep the bolt from spinning. So there is actually plenty of fudge room if the holes drift a little bit off while filing them. It's no big deal. I had to make a couple of rectangular holes (slots) in my CF seat to keep the seatpost holes lined up with the seatpost.
