I'm glad you're happy and you sure have confidence to take on this project on a perfectly fine Daytona.

But hand made or not, the finishing is poor, open brass is going to oxidize, there is no particular finishing on the bridges either, just scratched brass. You damaged many of the screws that are visible. The finishing on the rotor is god awful, and the bit of rhodium you left will flake off over time, into the movement.

I don't want to 'bash' your work, but it is far from a job well done IMO. But to each their own and all that matters is how much you like it, it certainly is a one of a kind.
