About: I'm a graffiti artist actually I'm studying an engineering in innovation and design, I´ll try to share you up my designs and other stuff

So my car needed new brakes, so I started wondering about how to re-use them, when they finished with it, they lend me the discs and then I noticed that they were actually kinda heavy, so I decided to adapt them to my Z bar…

Step 1: Materials & Step 1

Obviously disc brake
Z Bar
Wood, MDF, any material that can be cut easily and haves the strength ( I used foamed PVC, ´cause I had spare)
Drill bit, i used 1" bit

I cleaned it before, I used sugar and detergent and mixed them together.
Then polished (actually it didn’t appear to be a difference)

Step 2: Cutting the Lids

Fist trace the circle or any form that cover the holes, you will need 2 for the insides, 2 for the frontal hole.

Cut it (it hadn´t to be perfect)
Find the middle of them, drill the hole in each one.
I sand the edges of the frontal lids, to avoid any sharp edges

Step 3: Assembly

Just put the inside lid then the disc and the exterior lid

    Great idea, but just a thought. Why not buy two round flanges made for 1" threaded pipe and weld them to each disc. It would be more secure. I've seen plates come off a bar and if they hit you, it's not good. It would just make it safer.

    Thats a great idea, actually the pvc is handling well temporary, but for an improvement it´s awesome :)
