chevyrestore I built a few of these, felt the same exact way you did about not wanting a front brake setup. Got in a car accident because of it and totalled the car. Believe me its worth it to have it, not only will you be able to drive safely everywhere but it will be much more fun to drive because you wont have to worry about stopping.

Whether you go with drum drum or disc drum or disc disc we can help you get it setup. I went with disc drum and switched to disc disc and LOVE IT!

If you can afford it go with a disc disc power brake setup, it will feel like a new car, PM me anytime you need help. Im doing a disc disc conversion on a 59 chevy truck right now and have run into EVERY problem imaginable so I can help you prevent this from happening to you. I finally got it dialed in and its SO MUCH better to drive, feels safe, easy to slow down, and when I need to I can stop instantly....like thay say "better to be safe than sorry"

I see you have a problem with sarcasim too..
Based on my observations, and Jayson's response, it seemed to me that folks here with a lot of tenure were ganging up on him, a new member, with only a couple of posts.

These new fellas need advice, but also need some positive reinforcement.

Thank you for your post above to Jayson.

And for folks that spell Camaro with an E.... sorry, that's a pet peeve.

NEW INTERIORS Jayson.. All joking a side.. Good luck with what every you go with.. I'm sorry this got off topic... I'll step a side..Hope you get it all figured out..

Everyone here but YOU gave him the same advice,, And he told everyone he DIDN'T want front brakes,,, So when you ask for help,, You might just hear what you don't want to hear... You seem to have the problem, Not him... I along with everyone else tryed to help.. And you come down on me.. That's funny !!!

And as far as me slapping someone.. You don't know me to well..
