fine, cheers ernie, mate :D

you know, things changed every now and then, had to repair the garden shed - the wife's was forcing me to do so :lol: also weather was very fine within the last weeks and so did some riding, too - next bad weather period will come for sure, than its buildtime again :)

the Shimano shim arrived, but needs some mods to fit perfectly - also have to make them lighter :D

did some rework on the shims I got. they are Shimano's, and universal fit, so wanted to have them the same shape as the 950's clamp - the result after some minutes with grinder and Dremel:
