Actually I really went "old school" on this project. I used the clutch cover as a template, and just laid out the plate and sawed it out. I also used a fly cutter in the mill to bore the holes to 1.3745. It's kind of fun doing it that way. You can tell by most of my projects I love working with Aluminum.
