I'm waiting for caliper install pics, very curious to see how you did it.

Enkei's get my vote instead of Pegs

Oh yes sorry I couldn't get my camera in there I will try using my phone. I meant to reply back to the other thread about it. The hubs themselves were added onto to accept the R brakes same as in Johann's post. The person who did them for me has been using a similar setup on his car for about 1.5 years I believe.

Those Enkeis look good - I was considering a set (RSF5) in black for mine :)

Do you have a rear mounted battery installed? I noticed the heavy gauge cabling in one of the pics by the pedals...

Hopefully it will be done well before that although there is interior work on the docket as well which may drag it out. Anyway I'm in Georgia the first week and back around the 10th so that's good timing.

Can you give more details on how you added the mount for the front R brake calipers? You said it was based on Johanns design, but I cant find anything in his thread about it. Do you have a link?

sorry no I was saying that it was the same as the pics that Johann posted up in the how your car sits now thread.   I don't actually know any details about what Johann posted and actually I had never seen another set of these done prior to this. Ultimately a customer of mine in Vermont made them for me on trade. He reshaped the hubs, added material and then welded everything together. I will check my email to see if I have any progress pics. These have been in progress for about a year haha.

Hoping to have the car mobile again by the end of this week.

 

Gary I'll be in Grant Park Atlanta. not sure if we're flying or driving.

Incidentally I'm trying to get these interior parts shipped over from the west coast and the cheapest rate I can find is about $750! Does anyone have a good frieght hookup I just can't see paying  $750 for shipping on a new interior, there's got to be a cheaper way.
