Well as you can see from below i finally got my Disc conversion. I got the Baer track 13" polished caliper brake kit from Street or Track who had it to my door step 2 weeks before i was told i would get them thank you very much! I also installed a JMC Dual master cylinder with them. As you can imagine the brakes are night and day compared to the old drums. I would defiantly recommend to anyone. The master cylinder i had a little problem with the front one which wasn't building pressure so i traded it in same day which was no problem. The only beef i have with both the master cylinder and the brakes was the lack of instructions. The baer kit wasn't bad and was pretty easy if you've done a brake job before, but the master cylinder only came with bench bleeding instructions.... Which most people know anyways. This master cylinder has a Bias bar which controls front and rear brakes and doesn't need a proportional valve. They gave no instructions on how to balance them. I just figured it out with trail and error. Over all very happy and it stops GREAT!!!!!!! Oh for those of you with front drum brakes, if you have a vibration at higher speeds, its mostly likely your drums! Mine was bad cause they were warped and almost over spec so i couldn't turn them. Plus mine were not balanced or at least didn't have a balance weight. These are my opinions and i don't have any affiliation with any of the brands mention. Had to get the legal issues out of the way :p

Greg-

That is a beautiful setup. Im planning on going with the dual master cylinder, also.

By the way, will I be wasting my $$$ if I add the dual master cylinders on my non-power brakes?

I'm jealous. They look great and I like that polished caliper.
Did you go to the dual MC b/c you left your rear drums and needed to balance better than the stock a disc MC? Could you have used a stock disc/drum MC, or is the JMC one recommended by Baer?

The JMC dual master cylinder gives a more power brake feel without the booster. The pedal is very comfortable now and doesn't require excess effort. It feels almost like power brakes. I kinda got a nasty cam and didn't want to worry about vaccum. They use these master cylinders in race cars for years, saves wieght and is very reliable and safe.
