Well, you now have a rear disc but I don't see a rear caliper. That may come in handy . . .

I also have a rear drum and wondered about converting to disc. I assume it would take a bit of plumbing to accomplish.

Don't get me wrong they are an excellent example in detailing and component interchange etc and I am sure they are perfection up close, but............ it is no more than a lot of other people that I know are doing in their sheds.



Not saying you're wrong, but this might not be the thread.
