Found a 72 donor car with factory power disc brakes. I pulled the MC and booster today, and am heading back in the am for the spindles, rotors, calipers, plates, and lines. Do I need the arms too? The body is in excellent condition, but they will not sell the whole thing, so I'll take the saws-all and get the rear qtr sections that I need, and the floors possibly. Anyone done this much of a transplant before? Am I better off just buying full pans vs trying to cut these? Probably take the doors too depending on what my time looks like.

You should only need idler arms if the car was a I6 and you're putting in V8 suspension. I'm not too sure as far as the body part is concerned =/

I can't see trying to save the floorpans as being at all practical. I like to use original stuff and save a buck as much as anybody, but I wouldn't. Nice brand new pans are very reasonably priced.

Well, I got the fill spindles, calipers, rotors, plates, soft lines and brackets, as well as the power booster and MC. Also picked up hood trim, dash pad, and misc trim pieces. $120 total!!!!!!!
