    Yup, stock fiero calipers - Just three coats red engine enamel and two coats clearcoat.

    I bought the braided lines at Race Tech in Toronto - Paid $230 Canadian, which was a rip off, but I didn't want to bother with getting them over the border. www.fierostore.com has them, as do most performance stores if you want a special order...


    I didn't get to finish the lines today because I snapped on of the replacement steel lines somehow, and the store was all sold out of replacements... Oh well, at least I got 50% of it done.

    Ari ,some stuff that cost in States lot cheaper doesnt pay to buy. I bought 2 door pop-ups (US$19 each) UPS,taxes,broker fee,duty over 60 Cnd $ .next I bought Crossfire distributor and tey send iy by US post total charge $16 for all taxes etc. next time is US mail or nothing. so it comes prety well same or cheaper to buy it here. On top of it dollar exchange.

    Good timing and Good Luck!!! It's not too hard... although working with that darn T55 Torx bit is a hassle!

    Ironically, I just put up the pics of my Brake Conversion last night. Check out the Suspension page on my Build Site if your interested in seeing more. The site is www.gopc.com/F355/F355x.html

    I have a really cool picture of the new brakes on the front with the old brakes on the rear... Quite the comparison!

    Here's a pic to wet your appetite...



    Good Luck!

    While I'm at it, I might as well post a shameless plug for my Supercharged Durango R/T and my Lotus Esprit Turbo

    They are on the "Other Projects" page on the F355 build site.

    I'm not trying to make anyone jealous... It's just different

    Actually, I'm kinda jealoous of that perfect Red you've got going there... I opted to go with Black because I'm going to have a Yellow car, but that Red is SOOOOO Gorgeous! I really like them... Darn you!

    Ari, did you use a special paint? I have only been able to find silver or flat black in the 1200 degree stuff. What did you use??

    I used plain ol' Rustoleum Cherry Red on my bird's calipers a couple years ago. There still good to go.
