Richard,
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, been in the middle of a remodeling job.
Just wanted to drop a note thanking you for your help. The emblem arrived, and is in quit nice shape for an original. I am in the process of polishing the hood and side
emblems, the ones you pointed me to on ebay. again thanks for your help.

p.s. I found your site and have added it to my favorites.

And then there is Harold, my other brother Bob! ( I’d never use him as a reference)…

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Question:  How can I convert my rear brakes to discs?

Answer: A couple customers have said that they spent around $600-$900 on their Rear disc brake conversion using an after-market kit.

I spent less than $400 on mine using my GM 10-bolt.  That is a whole lot less than the $600.00 to $700.00 package wanted from other suppliers.

With the CNC-cut adapter brackets, (available for $89.00 plus S&H), the conversion is pretty straightforward.   Note: instructions available upon request.

The parts: Use 1980 – 85 Cadillac (Seville, Eldorado, etc.) rear calipers with the built in parking brakes.   For the rotors (for GM application), use 1979 Firebird (5-bolt x 4-3/4).  I paid about $170.00 at my auto parts store for a new “Made in U.S.A.” pair.

I personally liked using the 1985 Seville calipers on mine because I like the way that the e-brake cables run along the leaf springs along the original drum brake cable path.…
