Ok so the brakes that come with the kit are small to say the least. That was not going to work for me sooooo I made new ones.

 

The old next to the new. The new ones are made from a 1 1/4" stainless washer for the rotor and 2 stacked 1 1/4" nylon washers (which I Dremeled the caliper out of.)

Looks good. With rotors that big i would have drilled them just as some more eye candy

Was going to but on one of the other washers (did not use it) the drill would not get thru it without dulling out and finally breaking off the tip of the drill. Figuring it must have been some kind of a sign, I "machined" them instead with a drill and screwdriver tip.

There is someone on ebay that sells brakes like this in resin.

Edit: please don't take me wrong. I think these look awesome. Just for future reference if your looking for some.

Very nice work on this one Josh

I'll be checking in on it as you go.

I scratch build and customize a lot of my models and know what's involved in building it your way.

You got a lot of time in this one.

It's looking real nice.

Fresh paint done, 4 coats of clear wetsanded between each coat. Base coat is Perfect Match GM dark blue metallic decanted and airbrushed with HOK Majik Blue Pearl over it. Looks like a good representation of Kona Blue. Next will be the white stripes, then the satin black trim at the bottom.

that looks really good. the front splitter and rockers are carbon fiber. the rear piece is stock satin black. nice to see you are going to do the optional white stripe. for 2013 you can choose black,white,silver,red or blue for the stripe.

:lol: Thanks Joshua. I think I'll keep it though. ;)  Coming close to the finish line with it.

Thanks Fred. Been debating if I want to try to wrap the sides and splitter in carbon.....I do have some 1/12 twill weave. Hmmmm
