1957 Oldsmobile Booster/Master cyl upgrade kit for discs, almost complete!

After trying for months to find a simple kit to upgrade my brothers 57 Oldsmobile 88 from drums to discs, I found very little. That is unless you want to remove the front end of the car and modify the firewall, not really a kit!! I did manage to find one kit from Australia but found it to be a bit overpriced for what it was. So decided to attack the job myself and are very near completion, yay My KIT will bolt in with a small amount of modification to the brake pedal and a couple of extra holes in the firewall around the pedal area. Pedal ratio should work out about 6/1 and a 7" double diaghram booster is used with what ever master cyl you decide to use with it. I have used a Willwood 1" bore master cyl with remote reserviors.
It seems a bit pointless to go through all this work for just the one car, so I would be keen in making some copies of the conversion I have done if anybody else out there would be interested in purchasing one from me.
