BRAKES

When restoring a car I always like to start with renewing, and if possible, upgrading the brakes.

FRONT BRAKES

  • The calipers were rebuilt and installed with new hardware.
  • The rotors were cleaned and painted with high temperature paint to minimize corrosion and for appearance.
  • New Porterfield carbon metallic pads were installed.
  • Stainless braided brake hoses were installed after this photo was taken.
  • To upgrade brake performance, modern sliding pin type calipers from Vicks Autosport were subsequently installed at the front.
  • FRONT BRAKES

  • The new brakes have larger vented rotors compared with the originals.
  • REAR BRAKES

  • The calipers were rebuilt and installed with new hardware.
  • The rotors were cleaned and painted with high temperature paint to minimize corrosion and for appearance.
  • New Porterfield carbon metallic pads were installed.
  • Stainless braided brake hoses were installed after this photo was taken.
  • PEDALS AND MASTER CYLINDERS

  • The pedal assembly was removed, cleaned and painted.
  • New brake and clutch master cylinders were installed.
  • In the process of renewing the brake system a custom line was installed to bypass the front brake booster.
  • The brake and clutch reservoirs were cleaned before installation.
  • New connecting hoses were installed for each reservoir.
  • THROTTLE PEDAL

  • While restoring the pedal assembly the throttle pedal was rebuilt with new pivot bushings.
  • After all of this work, I decided to take a break........
  • After the break, new pedal pads were installed on the completed assembly.
  • A scuff plate was added next to the throttle pedal to protect the upholstery
