Front Disc Conversion In
 
Hey All-
Been a long day, but I got the disk brake conversion in. Way cool!



Just wanted to see how brake master cylinder set up would look. Big sucker! Need to take it back out for the steering column/box.



Beer time! :D

Hey, Justin! That is looking nice! Yup, now it is time to relax a bit and toss a cool one! Thanks for posting the pix!

Wow, super clean setup. Nice work!

That looks like the same kit I've got, be interested to see how it works. I've now just got to get master cylinder and booster.
Actually a pretty easy conversion, nearly completely bolt on. Tiny bit of grinding.

Which booster/MC combo did you use? Was it bolt-on?

Thanks

Justin good stuff! Nothing like a couple of cool ones after a project like that. Beer commercials are made with this in mind:rolleyes:

Sure wish those scarebird brackets were available 10+ years ago when I converted using the Granada stuff - would have made things much easier.

Although mine stops fine - I do like the look of the drilled and slotted rotors you used. A bit heavier looking than the Granada.



Don't think that master cyl and booster combo is too bad at all. Similar to my set-up needed to clear the A/C evaproator box when using the original style bendix booster that was under the hood.


Great work!
Eric
