You got it Clint, went with the Z51 setup from Tobin/Kore3. Looks like they are listed at 340mm or 13.38 inches.

Re: 65 SS Chitvelle - My PT attempt

Nice progress Dan, you're putting me to shame!

What sound deadener/heat barrier do you plan to use? I spent alot of time researching and ended up using a product called NOICO sold on Amazon. Its a peel and stick rubber product that come in 2 thicknesses. Costs less than 1/2 of Dynamat. I also plan to use a ThermoTec Felt/Foil blanket over top for the floor to keep the heat out.

Great minds think alike! I also chose the Noico. I ordered up the 80 mil for the floor and 50 for the other panels. I will have to look into the ThermoTec, definitely want to keep the noise and heat down. I have heard too many stories of people restoring old cars only to hate driving them cause there is so much heat getting into the cabin. I don't want to be that guy. I am also hoping that the raptor lining will take a little of the heat/sound away.

Re: 65 SS Chitvelle - My PT attempt

This is what I am going to use on the floor, firewall and trans tunnel over top of the NOICO.

Not super expensive

The glue and tape cost more than the roll of insulation.

I thought so, Dan. I'm also seriously considering that same set-up. Did you go with Tobin's billet hubs? What front wheels are you looking at using?

Yup, that is what I went with for the fronts. You should give Tobin a call if you haven't already. He was great to talk with about my set up and what I wanted out of it. I went with the C7 rear hub as I went with the MillerBuilt full floater kit and that is what he uses for those. Also through Tobin.

Funny you say that about wheels. Man that has got to be one of the hardest things to pick for a car. And the cost is all over the place, from 150-1500 per wheel. I get wrapped into thinking about Forgelines all the time. But also like the old school look of a 5 spoke. But on another day I will find myself looking at big rally wheels. So to not answer your question, I don't know yet, and I need to measure and get them ordered up...and I can't make the decision.

The main reason I asked what wheels is that those calipers have quite a bit of rotor overhang and as a result, caliper to wheel spoke clearance can be an issue. If you can afford Forgelines, it won't be a problem. However, I have Torq Thrust VN215's and for them to fit the C6 Z51 calipers I plan to run, will require a wheel spacer for adequate clearance between the wheel spokes and calipers. Hopefully, I can get by with 1/4" spacers because Tobin's billet hubs offer a 1/4" track reduction,on each side. If so, my track width would stay the same.

Clint,

When talking to Tobin he guided me towards Billet Specialties if I was going to go with a torque thrust style wheel. He said they worked well with him and know the dimensions that his setup requires. I was also looking at the same ones that Tom runs. I think they are the Vintage Wheel Works V40 or 45. But Tobin thought those might have some spacing issues.

Those front calipers are big!

Re: 65 SS Chitvelle - My PT attempt

I'm trying to avoid having to buy new wheels,Dan. FWIW, there's not that big a difference in cost between Kore3's C6 Z51 brake kit and some Wilwoods.

I had talked to some people about the wilwoods, a few things were brought up.

1- They use NPT fittings, some people do not like that idea.
2- Parts availability, need to go to them to get rotors or shoes.

I know but Baer pricing is out of my budget, now. Funny thing, I was a Baer Wholesale/Distributor for about five years and now I can't afford their stuff.
I'm pretty sure I can keep my 18x8 front wheels, even if I have to space them out a little. 18x9's might be a different story,though.

Can't find a used set of a ZL1 or a cts-v?

I would definitely have to buy new wheels with those brakes.
