hmmm me an you gots the same nuts.... :rolleyes:
have you had any problems with adaptor for the lugs stripping out? I have gone through one already and the second one is giving me fits now...Those are some nice brakes...
how do you like your frozen rotors so far? I have had mine for a little over 7 months now and I love them...I am not going to go cheap on the pads next time though...
How hard is the conversion....I have read about it in a couple magazines...but it has been a while...



Looks good and keep it up...

I'm confused. You say you have a big brake swap, but the pictures show Z32 brakes. Do you have both and the pics aren't up to date, or what?

Anything else done do it?

no problems with the adapter so far, but then again they have only been torqued down once. As for the brakes I HAVEN'T even driven the car yet. I am still waiting on a couple bolts for the back. As for the conversion it's pretty simple unless your car has over 200K like mine :rolleyes:

I consider it a "big brake swap" since I was going from my stock single piston caliper to 4 piston calipers and from 9.8" rotors to 11" rotors. Brembo and rotora kits are too much $ to spend right now.

Oh okay...I was confused about which one you had. IMO you don't need any more than the Z32 brakes. The stock single-pistons will lock up the wheels (no ABS), they just fade quickly. I'm all about the Z32 swap. Looks like a clean conversion you did. :bigthumb:
