    Looking for the white plastic isolator steering column mount. The upper steering column mount. Is it available reproduction? Do you have any for sale.

    I am putting together the 66 LTD for Alexei who contacted you a little while ago. How are you going to run your parking brake cables with the calipers ‘front’ mounted? You need to use your parking brake regularly to keep the brakes adjusted or you will get a ‘soft’ pedal.

      Hey Lee, I haven’t got that far yet. But I will soon find out

    Hey I currently have a rear disc conversion on my 66, not sure which one it was on before. It appears to be similar, but when I submitted my year in the website for right stuff it says they don’t offer anything for this year? Now I’ve been building this car a year now so I know the routine. Putting in the year/make/model forms never work for this but did you just have to contact them directly? I’m just trying to find out if my brackets will work with what brakes and calipers etc. I also have Kore3 up front and the entire Hotchkis suspension my only difference is I am the first (via Hotchkis ) to bag with their control arms. Looks and works amazing. But awesome build man yours is scary similar to my car.

      I believe with the right stuff disc kit you can just look it up as a 9 inch small bearing to pull it up. I would love for you to share how you did your air suspension

        Yeah just looked up some parts and I did find it right after I made the comment so I feel silly now. The front was MBM brakes and the rear was autocityclassics. So I’ll be calling KORE3. As for the Air ride it took a little bit but I got some good remarks from HOtchkis as the first to bag but if you would like to share some of what we did I’d love to do that. I have some interesting interior stuff as you did. I fabricated some other cars stuff into mine as well. My email is I enjoy reading your build and I think we have a lot in common as far as what we are doing.

    What did you use for your rear brake conversion?


    1. 66ltd says:

      I went through Jegs with the Right Stuff kit ZDCDS05. Its ok. If I could do it over Id go with the kit from KORE3. Its made with the PBR calipers which makes cobra and corvette brake parts. It is a little more but much better. Since I have what I have I’m going to keep it. Unless you want it? lol
