Nice brakes. Is this bolt-on? Front or rear?

Those brakes looks so nice. Was it custommade or can I buy it from somewhere?

Brackets are made to order (group buy).

Be sure to use safety wire on the bolts for the rotor to hat... and dont be alarmed if you have to have your rotors turned. What pads did you decide on?

My rotors had to be turned. Kind of frustrating but whatevs. Also don't be alarmed if the guy at autozone has no idea what he's looking at. Like a two piece rotor is some revolutionary piece of equipment.

Yep. Got one torgue to spec with thread locker. Will safety wire it per Wilwood's diagram. Went with 150-8854K pads. Didn't see a need to go with the others... yet...

Default P1800 Tunnel

This arrived tonight. Stole the idea from Andrew Nance. Lol.



Will test fit the rear end tomorrow. If all goes well, will paint it and maybe install.

Thanks,

Default Wilwood Big Brake (Front) Conversion- Rear End- Fuel Line

Well made some progress tonight. Hope to get some more done tomorrow.

Safety wired the bolts holding the rotor and hat together. This was my first time doing it and was a lot of fun. Will have to adjust a few, but you get the idea.


Painted the rear calipers with something new today... Wasn't a fan. O well, can always just powder coat them.


Started painting the rear end tonight. Will get the cover powder coated. Will finish it up tomorrow.


Did a mock up tonight of the -6 fuel line. Will change out the fittings to the tank to minimize connections and get a better angle. I'm concerned with it sticking out to far (seen below) and the rear might make contact. Will play around with it more tomorrow.


Thanks,

I also tried to install the poly bushing for the rear tonight, but wasn't sucessful. It appears the new poly bushings OD are about 4mm larger than the openings for the rear arms. Reach out to IPD to see if this is accurate.

Finished painting the rear. Will have to wait on other parts before putting it together.



Powder coated the original caliper brackets today too.





Thanks,

Thank you. Still waiting on the front HUBs. Will order springs for the rear Friday. Need to get the rear trailing arms fixed. My goal is to be able to get her on the ground in the next 2 weeks.

Well I got the end links in and few other things in for the rear. Need to drop the tank to put in a new fitting for the new fuel line (-6). Will replace the sending unit and repaint it when I have it out. Hopefully I don't find any surprises when I'm in there.



Took out the seats today (planning on putting in new ones/ different ones). Also will need the room to modify the tunnel. Discovered some surface rust under the seats. Doesn't seem to have gone all the way through and isn't very pitted, so will clean it and paint it.



Thanks,

No, but I can get more pics for you this week. I left the car emptied out in case you needed more.

Default Reassembling Read End

Started putting the rear end back together tonight.



Don't like that the new bearings sit out further. Will need to investigate.



Thanks,

That's definitely a problem. The lip seals need to press in there also. Must be wrong bearing or their not all the way seated.
