Disk brakes and a/c vent upgrade

Well I got the disk brakes done what an improvement I can stop now.if I had to do it again I would not buy the kit. I would get all the parts individually cut the tubing and flair them is real easy u can buy all the fittings at auto zone for half the money.i bought the kit for 160 dollars didnít like the setup spent 40 more getting parts doing it right.
I also put in 4 more return vents and 3 cold air vents.seems to flow more air also put some more 1 1/4 pvc pipe in the ducts trimmed the round bases and clipped every other blade out.

Great job, if that doesn't fix the problem not sure what would.

I'm with you 100% on buying the parts separate and doing the brake lines by hand. The line kits are made way too generically for my taste. On the same thought, I definitely don't care for the all rubber reinforced hose kits at all. The metal kits have way too much tubing so they will fit all applications. You end up coiling up the excess which just doesn't sit well with me. The tees and pieces in those kits to get both sides of the axles plumbed is designed for the easy way out not necessarily the best way. I'm not belittling anyone on the MOC that has done either … I have the time and skill to do it the way I feel looks and performs better. Good job bye the way on the A/C photos.

Where did you buy the additional vents?
