It will work. I wish I had a plasma cutter instead of the metal cutting disk on my skillsaw.
You will be sooooooo glad you have disk brakes. My only problem was the crap double flare tool I borrowed from the auto supply store. My 50 year old flaring tool set was missing the 7/16 adapter and the one in the Chinese kit I borrowed was crap. Had to re do several double flares because of leaks.

It's all done. The plasma cutter took about 3-5 minutes to cut each spacer out of the backing plates and then a little grinding to clean the edges and paint.

I haven't test driven it yet, but it's bleed and topped off. I used the hose kit so I didn't have to mess with double flaring any hard lines.

I appreciate the offer Mark.

I may try Craigslist to get rid of the like new drums. They only have about 2600 miles on them. Most of which was the 2200 mile journey from the factory to the west.
