With all new parts and your car being pretty meticulous, the disk swap should go quickly. The kit looks nice.

The kit is very nice. We were snowed in today, so guess what I was doing.

Even your floor is clean, I hate you. Seriously though, it looks great. A little more confidence on the highway.

The only part of the kit I dont care for are the braided brake lines they include to connect the master cylinder to the distribution block. they interfere with my "Z" bar. Im going to make my own lines for this. As usual photos will follow. LOL

The next project is to modify the drivers seat track for 2" more leg room. I ordered an extra used seat track off ebay for parts. My plan is to cut 2" off the track and weld it to my existing track. I started by disassembling my track. I'll keep you posted. Dave

I received my ebay seat track today and began by cutting two 2" pieces of the lower track. Then welding them on to the front of my existing track.




I also relocated the rear bolts by cutting the heads off and welding them to the track. I kept the square heads to tack back into the end of the track to keep the roller from falling out once the track was assembled.




And there it is. About three hours labor. The drivers seat now goes bac 2" further.



I have enough scrap pieces to do another seat if anyones interested. Dave.

Did the system come setup to exit through the cutouts at the rear or did you have to modify it?

I think there is enough adjustment that it would of fit with or without the cut out rear valance
