Looking good! Man, first Trainman gets his car going and now it looks like Bill's going to be running soon too. I've got to start moving my arse or Pizzaman's going to pass me as well.

Bill, a few questions about your brake setup if you don't mind me asking:
1. What are the calipers from? 360?
2. Where did you get the rotors made up?
3. What are you running for the master cylinder?
4. What are you doing for a parking brake?

Thanks in advance. Good to see you have a watch dog keeping a careful eye on the car.

Thank you guy's for all the kind words.

Bret, the front calipers are Ferrari 360 that I found on Craig's List for CHEAP. I swapped some parts with Luckydines on Fchat. He needed a front timing cover with gears and I got a new light weight starter, plus the hats,rotors,adapters. The master will be swapped out with a 25.4mm from a Iveco Daily #4797280 (its a perfect fit)


The pit bull's name is Carrera she is 10 and just a great part of are family. We had Carrera's sister Targa but she is no longer with us :-(

Cool. I picked up a set of 430 brakes - front and rear - on the cheap as well last year. Same as your 360. Now I just need to figure out when I'll have the time to mount them.

550 and 575M front brakes are the same diameter at 330 mm, but thicker at 32 mm vs 28 mm, but the rears are smaller at 310 mm x 28 mm vs 330 x 28 mm for the 360/F430. Fronts would work, but the rears have a built in brake drum, so not sure how that would work.
