I have CPP aftermarket front disc already and their MC as well.

Also , are you planning on hooking back up an emergency brake ?

I have power discs up front and a 50/50 dual master cylinder already, but I'm changing out the existing distribution block (came on the car and may not be correct for dual discs) for an adjustable proportioning valve, adding a line lock for the front, and all new hard lines. The brakes on this car have always been trash (rears never really worked, and the fronts wouldn't hold the car for burnouts), so this should be night and day.
I am not going to use the emergency brake for the time being, as it's never worked either. I may do this down the road: http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Pinion...ake,44784.html

ALMOST done. We've been chipping away at it little by little as time allows. I had to get new stainless flex lines for the rear brakes, as the stuff Quick sent was some oddball size that wasn't going to jive with everything else.

Welp, everything is all buttoned up!!
Well, almost. Got a leaky fitting on the outlet of the line lock that needs addressing. Started out ok, but after a few stops, the pedal was going to the floor from what I assume is air getting in the system. Other than that, all seems great.

Thanks!!
Same wheels it's always had, but they do look cooler with the 3" lugs and exposed axle ends.

I had some issues with my line lock leaking as well. Ate some of the paint off my inner fender.
I put all new Wilwoods on mine during the QP install and had a lot of issues with air in the lines.
Good luck and great progress so far!

Mine is dripping down on the steering box, so no biggie there.
We're going to work on it tonight. Pull the line lock, see if we can't get it to seal up. If not, I may just put a union in it for now and get it replaced under warranty. Then thoroughly bleed the brakes. Fingers crossed!!

It's the line lock. Pulled the fitting off, used some Leak Lock on it, put it back in, cranked it down as much as we were comfortable with, and still gushes fluid. Looks like pretty poor machine work with a really dull tap on the output threads. Gonna return it to Summit and get the Hurst unit instead. But for now we put a union in its place so I have brakes. I might even get to test drive it if it ever stops raining here.
