wow, very nice parts! Your 521 looks great, especially those wilwood brakes. You gotta let me know how that radiator cools with your 2.3 in there. Cant wait to see the 2.3 in there! :D

They are 12 inch rotors custom made by juan or krecs.its a 2 part rotor in that he makes the top hats from scratch.i met you once at the inland empire datsun meet.i think you met juan to.i wil call him and have him chime in i all the needs or wants if any one is interested.

damn......how much was that?

because you didnt earn it, you didnt build it. and that makes a difference. simply owning a car doesnt make it your car

I got between polishing motor carbs fuel pump radiator and what have you about 4500.00 so far.but I spent way more then you need to I just wanted to I guess get as brand new as possible.you figure between brakes all the engine stuff and new wheels and tires on the way I spent about another 8500-9500.00 and I still need to do my coil overs up front.
