That is a cool search engine.  You're lucky in the west.  I found one within 500 miles of me....lol

I have ordered the parts for my Big Brake conversion. I will get started once temperatures get into the 60's.

Here is what I have ordered:

A1 Cardone Ultra weatherproof coated calipers: 19P1337A left, 19P1336A right

Bendix TitaniuMetallic pads: MKD473

Centric 12146014 rotors  x2

Timken SET11 bearings  x4

National 710323 outer seal   x2

National 4990 inner seal   x2

Dorman 610518 wheel stud  x8  M12-1.50 ; 12.95mm Knurl; 43.0mm Length


My friend has a lathe that will be used to turn the hubs down. At the same time I will also be making hubcentric spacers.

I will be painting the rotor hats and outer edge with VHT high temperature clear paint to keep the rotors from rusting.

Bearings will be packed with Mobil 1 synthetic grease.

The last time I replaced the front bearings (2010)  it was impossible to use my hydraulic press for some of the work. This time I have a new Press support block plate which will allow the spindle to be supported properly.

My total cost for all the parts and supplies came to just under $150.00

I am ready for winter to be finished. I have spring fever now!!!

Cool....Jack Byrd

Yes, I've heard California taxes and registration are crazy.  You can get an NC title by filing a bond and VA titles are even easier.  The bond is a simple insurance policy from any auto insurance company.

I had someone ask me about titling out of California... I drove a black 94xr2 from there to Florida for a former friend, he never retitled in Florida, after several years the signed California title was lost, and attempt to get another title from the former owner was just expensive... California said since the registration was not renewed for 3 years, then 3 years back registration fees were due, even though the car was not in that state.  Also, with penalties, cost would be over $1400 for a duplicate title from the state, so that never happened... I'm told Oregon is the same, cost wise

Reminds me a lot of the Clubsprint lights. Russ had done a molded prototype years ago that took Vette circular lights if I am remembering right.
Do you have any plans for reverse lights? Are they built into the LED panels?

Ok , so these are REALLY not even roughed in yet. Those are color print outs, to scale of the lights I bought. They get here from overseas this week and are brand new. This version utilizes the GTS smoked tail light covers and will be built as such that you could "reverse" it without harming the 91-93 tails. The lights will be in housings that resemble the Ferrari 458 tails (though not as deep as in the pic) since there is a slight angle on ours, that I would need to account for so that they face vertical instead of tilted. I will also either incorporate a reverse light between the circular lights that is rectangular like the R32 Skyline lights OR I have an LED that is dual function as a 3rd Brake light AND a reverse light that attaches to the top bolts of the license tag bracket. OR I will delete the stock 3rd brake light and glass an LED bar into the new rear spoiler that I am fabbing for it that is reminiscent of the Millen one from years ago. ALSO, I plan on painting/tinting the outside bezels of the first lights so that they will still look metal but will blend into the tinted GTS tail light covers better. I think this would also be the easiest one for someone to replicate that doesn't have a lot of skill working with cat hair/long strand fiberglass.


R32 Skyline Reverse lamps inset of the two tail lights



Ferrari 458 housings idea


 I am also making a pair that requires some fiberglass work and uses the Depot 300ZX "Ferrari" Tail lights. with a donor set of 91 stock tails for the housings. They would have LED star bulbs in them as the MAIN reason I am doing this is function. Form matters but is secondary since our tails are woefully "underlit" even with adding the second brake light bulb to the inner housing.



I have done this mesh "3D" surround on my RX7 if I can find some pics



Last, I want to try a 3 light "sequential set utilizing Dakota Digital LED tail lights for a 62 Impala and not use the chrome bezels.
