    Has anyone got this completly installed yet? What about pics? Sorry, i read through all of the post, but didn't see anyone post that they got it done. Atleast i didn't see it anyway.

    How much did it run? I thought that I saw $600?

    Harley was looking into this a while back as well. I'm sure he'll have some insight about now...

    I really really want to do this, but I just want to make sure that it is possible. Then I can start buying the parts.

    Hey guys

    I finished my set up and did some 30-40 mph stopping and they worked great.At the time the car did not have any front clip on or glass ect,ect so that's why I was unable to do some real hard testing. I have my car completely apart and in storage until I move into my new house. If I can be of any help let me know !

    HarleyT,

    Where did you get the brakets? Do have have any for-sale? Or do you have a drawing with the specs for the brakets and the spindels? This way we can get them done ourself.

    I REALLY want to do this so any help would be greatly appriciated! Detailed instructions PLEASE! [​IMG]

    I put C5 brakes on a set of spindals, it really wasnt that big of a deal. Took about 8 hours of work and around $700.

    I tested them on one of my buddys car, I think they will work great, but I didnt really get to test them because his MC was the wrong size (way wrong).

    Ill do a better test when I get them on my car.

    My 1974 camaro now smog exempt!
    400hp 383, 2004r, 4.11 rear, 450lb/inch springs, Del-a-lum, 12:1 steering, Trac-bite springs, big sway bars, need I say more?

    13" C5 brakes mounted on spindals ready to be installed, however, I don't have enough money for the big wheels and tires! D'OH!
