The Brakes that didn't give us a break

The Brake Pedal

Brake caliper and mount

When the electrical system was being done, the brakes were being made simultaneously. It took the whole night. It was difficult to find the right tension point and took some teamwork to get it up. Also, we only realised there was a better screw at the end, which made the job much simpler.

Looking back, we should have planned how the brake mounting bracket should be like in the initial stages. We didn't have time to prototype the mounting bracket and had to design it on the spot and rush it to the waterjet. We ended up making more manual cuts and had to file several times to make it work.
