My next modd is fabbing a set of 96 rear brakes off a 96 vette.They have the same overall height of 49,9 mm. The diameter is 304.8 mm and vented.They are 80 mm thick.The caliper is a PBR that has a built in emergency brake.
The rotor must be machined for the center hole to 89mm and redrilledl for are bolt pattern.
Next fabb some brackets for the caliper
Make some custom brake lines
I don't think the emergency cables will fit,longer cables.
I will keep you posted on the progress

So you are saying that he rotors you got did not have any holes or you got some other holes drill on them besides the ones they already had? PICS please.:pray:

The caliper is made of aluminum by PBR.It has an emergency brake with it.The Corvette rotor is 12" and 3/4" wide.It is also vented.The stock is about 10.5" and 1/2" wide and solid. I am waiting for the calipers,then I can finish the brackets .I will make some custom hoses.I think I will have to find some longer emergency cables

Cool project for a 1g! Do you have your fronts done? The Baer kit would be a perfect match. FYI, cheapest GM OEM Corvette rotors you will find... ROTORS

This weekend I fabb up the bracket and spacers. I made the plates out of 1/2 steel and the bushings from 1" round stock I will have my friend cut them out with the plasma cutter on monday.I plan on installing them next weekend.I will have some custom brake lines made. The problem I have not research, the hand brakes cables.I will have photos soon. It was alot of work for me.At one point I thought they would not fit. If anybody knows where I could get custom hand brake cables please let me know.

Looks great! What made you go this way with the rear brakes ? I have the bigger rear rotors from TCE but when those wear out maybe this would be a better bet since the parts are pretty cheap and easy to get, even here in sweden.

I upgraded my front brakes and I wanted to upgrade the rear brakes. I must have looked for 2 years for some brakes to upgrade .I found the Corvette has the same height on the rotors as our rears.Also the caliper has a hand brake with it.I must have 5 to 6 days to fabb these brakes. The caliper weighs about 6 to 7 pounds.They are made from aluminum.
