Looks good. What size rims are you running and are those chevy 3/4ton brakes?
I found a 14 bolt I'm picking up next weekend, just too bad I'll be waiting a while before I can save up for the rest of the project :bounce2:

Glad to know your using 15" rims and they fit. I guess I better load up on dremmel grinding stones and start now :D
What brake setup are you using? It would be nice to have a working setup with front and rear disc that actually work for once.

i'm using gm 3/4 ton cal(8 lug), mid 80's vette mc....the rock stomper kit would prolly be easier and chea[er.....the vette mc is made for 4w disc ....i'll let you know how it works:D
4.5"angle grinder with the coursest wheel you can find and some ear plugs....7' grinder would be better:shaking:


i've got to say plumbing an entire system from scratch is a BIG pain ...i'm sure next time will be easier:D after all was said and done the front are blead and work good the rear is leaking at the master. the mc is metric :shaking: i found adapt for the small size two front brake ports however the rear single port is a 12mm #1 thread and an adpt was impossible to find here so a tube shop made me a custom line for it ......they put in a reg dbl flare brake line and needs to be what i would call a tapered pipe fitting.....now i'm on the lookout for this adpt...12mm#1 male 3/16 fmale

anyway it leaks at the arrow
