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.

Olds Super 88 Dual Master Cylinder


Do you have any pictures of how you did the installation. I also have an Olds Super 88 and want to upgrade to a dual master cylinder. And as you know space is tight. So if you have solved the problem, I would be interested in it and purchasing the info if at a reasonable price.
