    This is my first DSM. I've come a long way with the build, but still have a long way to go.

    After a couple years of daily driving, I wanted to build it and make it fast and make it handle.

    UP TO DATE: I have $5200 in to this car. I could've bought 3 GSX's for that much. But it's not about that...

    Nice looking car but what minor accident did you have? I know I got into a bit of a fender bender on mine

      Thank you. In picture #5 you can see it. Busted headlight, cracked bumper, smashed fender. A few hundred dollars and it is like new again :)

    can I make a suggestion, don't bother with rear disc brake conversion unless it's pure looks your after. The disc's actually weigh more than the drums and reduce acceleration slightly. I know this because once upon a time I had a neon I worked on a lot and was in the same place wanting disc brakes until I learned about unsprung weight and how it affects performance much more than sprung weight. then I started researching lightweight rims. that brings its own headaches though rims ain't cheap and I live in an area with too many potholes.

      Thank you for the info. I only wanted them for increased stopping power, that way in the future when I do auto-X and possibly dragging I can stop in time. But I've also read about how the drums stop better than the discs.

      I think I may just keep the drums and save some money.
