Looks great and clearly there's been a lot of work. I'm interested in the front brake conversion because that's not one I've heard of before. What did it involve ?

Front brakes... So, it all started as 'just a stock resoration'... Then I fell into the BDD and the NG-1 tranny. A guy was making flares... a friend brought in the set of big wheels (and didn't need them)... so now the stock brakes started to look a little weak.

About this time, a friend had a Mallock sports racer, and a CNC mill in his wheel shop. In going over the Mallock, I noticed that it had very similar triumph based front upright/brake components. Except it had a very trick aluminum rotor hub / bearing carrier. So, we bought some aluminum, and fired up the CNC and copied them. They required the GT6 spindle, which as I recall required some machining somewhere along the way (I really don't remember why though). Built a bracket to hold the caliper, and that's it (yeah...).

Ended up with Wilwood 4 piston calipers on vented rotors.

That's very impressive work and sadly well out of my hacksaw, file and hammer capabilities smile

Great stuff though, I've not seen anything as cool as that.
