Progress looks great!
Yeah, I'm well aware of that. I put SN95 Cobra brakes on my '87.
Talked to Joe a bit about it and it sounds like he wants to stick with a factory style Kelsey-Hayes 4-piston front setup. Go manual for now, and if deemed necessary upgrade to power with a vacuum reserve canister.
I'm a believer in you only need enough wheel to clear your brakes, so if we go with the K-H setup it'll more than likely get the 15" Torque Thrust D's.
I've seen a coupe with 16" versions that looked great, but 17's just look a little big in these smallish wheel openings, in my opinion.
Rear suspension is all finished up, as planned. I'll post a few pics on Monday.
