All in all, I think the braking is actually quite good, I have no problems with it

Good luck with the letter, I'm 99% sure it'd go straight to the recycling bin.

Its an H-body thing. The reason GP have rear disc is because its a different chassis (W-body).

Nothing wrong with drums, rear brakes only do 35% of the work anyway.

If you don't like the looks..there'* not much we can do to help you.

If you are unhappy with teh stopping power. We can make many recommendations starting with adjusting the rears so they do their part.
