Finally did it.

Bought the PBR calipers, with some raybestos hybrid pads, and new wagner rotors. Friend is installing it for me while i am on the road, same time he is going to drop the fuel tank and replace the gasket, and the fuel sender unit with motorcraft parts versus whatever i put on, and put in a mark VIII driveshaft.


Any leads on a good supplier of stainless steel brake lines for our cars?

You mean these or the lines for the car body?

Any hydraulic shop can make you SS custom lines if you bring your stock ones to him. This isn't rocket science and they just need to know what the ends look like and depending on what labor costs in your area, this might be cheaper. FWIW, in super expensive Bay Area CA, a custom M5R2 hydraulic line cost me ~$50/ea (same stuff but slightly different ends).

If you want something off the shelf, Classic Tube makes them and sells them through their primary distributor for tbird bits. I called about buying them directly and it was cheaper to go through spinning wheels (no shipping).
SpinningWheels-SC - Search


I've used them for 6 weekends worth of lemons races (more abuse than a DD) before noticing some discoloration on the plastic jacket on the front SS lines (they still worked but I made the first set "race spares' and just went ahead and ordered a second set to put on the car). $145 for all 4.

Due to my job and how i am doing this, getting everything together at once would be the best bet. Thanks for the reccomendation and i think i will be going with them. NJ has expensive labor rates at times.
