If you do the subframe from your other post, you will have disc brakes. There are other brake options but I have not experienced it yet.

As for the vendors, often they go from car show to car show and swap meet to swap meet. Two big swap meets out my way are at Hershey and Carlile PA. If you can't find the parts there, you probably wont be able to find it!

You're lucky that you are working on a more popular vehicle. Check "Chevys of the 30's and 40's", "The Filling Station", or "Kanter Auto Products". You can find almost everything for your vehicle (or you can get a donor car - and where you are... there isn't a rust issue like in NY!)

Best of luck,
