No, sounds like Smellbird knows a guy who can help us out, but it might have to wait till spring (lol spring).

Looks good, I did mine a while back. . .





What it looks like know



Yours looks cool with the red behind the grey.

I'm sure mine would look better with some shiny new rotors like yours. . .

You know I ordered that front headlight assemly 3 weeks ago and haven't received it yet. Ticks me off. Trust me thats the worst picture you'll see of my car, its very nasty dirty and the frosted headlight doesn't make it better. BTW- Those brakes are sweet, they look even better in person.

You pained the pad some there '93.... make sure you can get her off.

Oh the new rotors were great! the pix of them installed were 1.5 days later, already some surface rust deposited. I made sure to scrape off the inside of the wheel and then the rotor for a clean mating surface.

Some of my favorites...

I lubed the piston seal with disc brake lube



You can see the poly-urethane endlinks in this shot.

wow. I didn't realize the rotors on the early 90'* bonnies were that much smaller than the newer ones. How big are they anyway?

Between 11-11.5. Not tiny, but not huge. Sure fills in the wheel though..
