Brakes are done man!!!

By buddyluv

This is where it starts. We started doing the brakes and found that the lines had been cut on both sides,then the e-brakes were rusted so bad...that the rears didn't work anyway!! I think the cam is junk,and the nose was hit harder than it looked. The power steering pump was empty, and when we added fluid...it ran right back out onto the ground(no wonder it was empty). so we replaced the power steering pump and all the rotors and calipers. now we find out that the tranny doesn't have reverse, so you know the forward gears are gonna suck!

I wanted to do this vette my way out of want, not need...... But.....i'm not bitter,it's my PROJECT car......but that doesn't mean i want to live in the projects! Peace!

WOW! That's rough having to replace all of those critical componenents right out of the hole! On the bright side, you won't be worrying whether the brakes will work or not in a defensive situation!

Building the list of what to do is the tough part... and crossing them off is the FUN part!

Good luck!
