I will send you an email with my address, thanks again for the information.
Also, thanks for trying to help out others...as you can tell, I am no expert at this stuff, but enjoy learning whatever I can, even if it takes some trial and error work. I too enjoy helping othes, but many times find the topics WAY out of my range of knowledge...such as this one. Yes, I have been reading the posts at Camaros, I find tons of info over there also.
FYI, my motives in the whole process are to 1) try and upgrade the poorly performing disk brakes I have on my Chevelle, and 2) upgrade my stock drum brakes on my 70 Nova. I was thinking that maybe if this Cheap Big Brakes thing works out on the Chevelle, I could then just reuse the disks off the Chevelle on the Nova. My Nova is my daily driver, so I don't really need the upgrade to the bigger disks, the stock disks should work fine. The Chevelle is another story... I put a rather mildly built 468 BBC in it last summer and boy is it fun now!! It just doesn't stop as well as I hoped. I'm pretty sure I need a new booster, but would like to try the bigger brakes to see some improvement.
Anyway, I would appreciate any useful info or insight you might have, and thanks again for the help.
