I decided to upgrade the fork top plate to a Toaster Tan fork top brace as I think it makes a sizable improvement in keeping the forks rigid and improves handling.
Installing the fork top brace is part of the procedure for installing and aligning the front forks, so did all of this work at one time. But, I broke up the documentation into two parts covering the Toaster Tan fork top brace and the front fork installation and alignment.

I also made two videos summarizing the procedures.
