Getting the brakes ready first time at power coating all in the prep, bit thick on the front but OK Baer 6 piston 14" pro front ,4 piston wilwood rear 8 3/4 355 with Torsion tru trac.
Not big on the Baer rears as they have Aluminium hat's rather than steel also the Wilwood has a better emergency brake setup.

That's a nice looking dash!

Is that a kit or did you fab it?
 
Had to make it from scratch after a few attempts at making an insert with fibreglass I ended up welding a long piece of sheet metal in then mounting a sheet of carbon fibre from the rear
