Disc Conversion

Hey guys getting ready to convert drum to disc brakes on my 67 Coupe. Should I just do front or would it be worth it to do disc all around. Also, any good brands that make a full disc conversion kit?

if you are planning to go four wheel disc, and you have the money, by all means step up and do the entire conversion. if you can only afford to do the fronts, then so be it.

as for kits, that depends on what you are wanting. you want a factory style disc conversion, and use 15" wheels? or are you going to step up to say 17" wheels and are going to want 13" front brakes?

if you want to step up to larger brakes, vintage venom has a kit that lets you use later model 13" rotors and cobra brakes with 17" wheels at a reasonable price.

master power brakes has disc conversion kits that let you use 15" wheels. and scarebird has brackets that bolt on to the factory spindles, use 15" wheels, and off the shelf parts to save a lot of money.
