The UPS guy stopped by last night.

They came with the VWW caps and lug nuts, but as previously mentioned Joe went for billet covers. These are going to look so purdy:

The wheels are a perfect fit out back (almost wish they offered them in 9" width). Will test fit the front fitment this weekend. Then it's off to Discount Tire to order the rubber.

Leaning towards BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 in 225/50x16 front and 245/50x16 rear.

Made a little progress this weekend. Joe came to town and we got a little work done in my cold garage.

Put the CSRP front brake kit on. What seemed like a simple install turned into a little bit of a headache. Had the caliper bracket and dust shield installed, but when we went to mount the rotor/hub, it would not seat all the way (couldn't thread the spindle nut in far enough to put the pin in the without a strange grinding/bind). Turns out the back of the hub/seal was contacting the caliper bracket. The castings were off center around the spindle opening, so I had to take my die grinder and work over both caliper brackets.

Then the passenger side dust shield does not clear the caliper enough to get the caliper on without some clearancing of the dust shield.

We also managed to rip out the old steering box to make way for the new Flaming River unit.

Anyway, here's a pic of the completed driver's side front suspension with the 4-piston Kelsey-Hayes disc brake conversion finally installed.

Yes, this project lives...

With this extremely nice February weather I have had to wander into the garage and tinker...even warm enough to paint a little.

Not too much to tell really, but got a little bit done.

Clearanced the dust shield and finally got the caliper mounted.

Since I pulled the steering and everything associated to it, I saw a nice upgrade to the pedal support I thought I'd throw in, so I ordered a bearing kit from Mustang Steve and pulled the pedal support too. Welded in the race, painted it all up and slapped in the sealed bearing.

The bearing does more for manual trans cars, but it's the same support and my thinking is it will be ready to go if Joe ever decides to toss the C4 in favor of a trans with a shifter sticking out of it. He says he won't, but...

I also thought a new brake pedal pad was appropriate seeing as the car has gone from drums to discs all around.

The one thing missing is the rubber stop at the top of the pedal arm...can't find a new one of those anywhere.

Just for giggles here's a couple pics of the Flaming River steering box. Everything I've read about those that have used this piece has been very positive as far as tightening up the steering. This, in combination with the roller bearing idler arm setup and believe it or not, the rollerized spring perches, is all supposed to help out the manual steering on these cars significantly.

Bitch of it is, Joe and I cut the shaft to get the stock one out. Gotta pull the entire driver's side motor mount assembly off to get the new one in. Not too big of a deal at this stage really, but...

I don't want to jinx myself, but my intention is to have this car on the tires by spring time.

Then I can work on wiring it up, and getting all of the cooling system sorted out and ordered. My goal is to have it running this summer..if all goes well.
