|Juicedz||Just finished sanding/painting my rear drums black the other day. I may pick up rear disc brakes in a scrap yard one day but at this point there's other priorities like painting side skirts (dip sucks) and lowering the suspension, etc|

[QUOTE=thehun;4417994]You do realize that 80% of your breaking is at the front.]
Right!!! On a FWD car the front tires make you go fast, make you go left and right and make you slow down/stop.
The rear tires just keep the rear bumper from making sparks. Just change the rear drum brake pads at the recommended intervals.

|Juicedz||Subscribing...I'd like to paint my brakes white but until I have rear disc I'll be hiding the drums in black paint :-( besides, who uses drums on a 2013 vehicle? Just glad I got a 5 speed!|

I'm going to subscribe to this thread. I have a 14-day old 2013 SE Sedan (auto) and would love to do this conversion, too. No hurry, and I'll be looking to see another success or two before I try this.
If someone could do a complete and verified by experience parts and tool list, and perhaps even a photo step-by-step, that would be really helpful. Also, if I do this, while I have the brake system "open" I'm considering having both sets of calipers sent off for powder-coating to make them "pop".

|Fraychild||That's awesome - thanks for the details and the part numbers. Where did you get the calipers from? Also, did you need to change the wheel hub assemblies?|
