Drum to Disc brakes on a 65 chevelle

Want to install disc brakes on all four wheels. Is there someone out there who has already performed this that could provide any guidance? I am concerned about the wheels fitting.....have 17" Cragers. Also, how difficult is it to hook up and bleed the brake lines? Any tips would be appreciated.

Welcome, Will!

I would post your question in the Brakes, Steering & Suspension section. You get more traffic and better answers there.
