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".

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!
