    I dont want ot go through all the trouble of getting bigger rear brakes to fit my wheels. I run 15 inch weld draglites now.

    Ive heard that you dont want the same size brakes in the front and the rear...It causes them to lock up under hard braking or something?

    I got a similar kit.
    Billet brakes, same as the Cobra.
    the 2 pistons.

    Took out the pistons and had them powder coated.
    came with lines.

    and I got the Eradispeed 1 piece rotors.
    Zinc wasked and worth the price many times over.

    I did this 6 years ago, before it was such a common thing.

    Thanks Robert. The gray and blue would match your car well.
    It's candy blue, dark gray metalic and the pony is a vynal sticker I had cut.
    Let me know if you have more questions.




    Thanks man!
    The zinc is alll for looks. It keeps it from rusting, especially around the hat area where non coated rotors get all shitty looking, and bleed rust onto your wheels. it wears off in the pad area. thats normal.
    Here's a recient pic. ben on there 6 years now.

    Wow dude seriously those rotors looks great for being that old. I will make sure to keep the zinc in mind when i do get around to upgrading the brakes on my car. Thanks for the input man.

    Here are my brakes. I went with stangsuspension rotors, and SS lines, im happy with the quality for sure for the price I saved. Got 10th anny cobra calipers. Then for the rear I got the baer 13" upgrade and painted my rear calipers.
