Sounds right to me. I just did my brakes today, and the bolts definitely looked like 10mm. I had to use a 15mm socket if that gives you a hint. Are you talking about something else?

It looks like you need this for the caliper:

Check the thread size to be sure. It looked like 10mmx1.0 for the caliper.


Then get this for the car:

http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/100780/10002/-1


Then you just need a -3an steel braided brake line with a straight on one end and a 90 deg on the other. I think I used a 14" line. You may need a 16" though.

thanks I was looking it over and a easier way may be to buy another Russel SS brake kit and make the fronts using two lines. Using the short rear piece with the front line. Would be two lines vs one but easy and quick to do?????

Thanks I enjoyed sharing the build. The car is now stripped back down and I'm prepping for paint. I think the paint scheme is going to be based on a Ford Racing ball cap I got for fathers day.
