You got a few questions about it, plus a geography question that I noticed too and that's all. Obviously with your other cars, you have been around the block a time or two, you weren't getting flamed. Welcome to FF.
Well said

Bienvenu to the forums.

In your op you mentioned plans but didn't state you had the parts already. I was trying to save you some cash. ;-)

I'll admit that I have no real reason for rear disks, but if I found some for $100 local, my car would be sporting them within a couple weeks. So much sexier than drums.

Looking forward to some project pics.

Oh and if that car is from the rust belt, be prepared for some serious pita install work for anything g having to do with the undercarriage. Plan for twice the amount of time you think you need, and buy yourself a torch if you don't have one already. Heat is your new best friend.

Nothing wrong with modifying a winter car, might as well have something you enjoy while the others are locked up.
