eheine20 well, thanks for the info. Didn't know the brake system was under the car to start. Mine doesn't exist. as far as the brakes go. the conversion was done already. the car has a front stub off a 70 camaro and rear out of a Monte Carlo. Man i have a lot of work ahead of me.

Irelands child I would probably start here for the bracket/pedal mount:

For appearance sake, under floorboards, my opinion , would be your best choice. Firewall mounts tend to create working space problems as well as just plain looking cobbled up.

I hope you are going to at least use front disc brakes plus improve the rears as this vintage Chebbie really has lousy originals.

eheine20 the original i believe was on the firewall, but im not sure. the car is just the shell and frame, 47 Chevy coupe. just exploring my options. Looking at what other do.

Irelands child Maybe then maybe not is about the only answer with the limited amount of information you gave us. What car do you have, where is the original mounted and where will you mount the replacement - firewall, floor, 90* under dash, etc.

Frame mounted Brake System

Just looking for more info an this. Seen alot of people use them. Can you just buy the mount and attach your pre existing master and booster? Do you need to buy the whole system? Are they any good? Where/ who is the best company to go to?



ps. the system will go on a 47 chevy coupe.
