    Doing an Airkewld/Wilwood brake conversion

    I'll be posting some pix as I change my stock VW Ghia front brakes to Airkewld's Bad Brakes setup with 4-piston Wilwood calipers.

    I did have to immediately change the studs - oddly enough, the only thread I can't get circle-track (45-degree) lug nuts for is the 14mm x 1.25 that Airkewld has as standard. I got 5/8" NASCAR studs and black aluminum nuts from Speedway Motors for not too much.

    What are you going to do with the rears?

    Please keep the photos coming. I was thinking about this set up for one of my kits also.

    I've currently got a modified Corvair rear suspension, with late '60s Camaro drums. In my new drivetrain, I'll be using an offset sprint car rear, so I'll just use that type of brake system.
