Thumbs up Nice ...

Claude ; I hope all is good up north . That' a very nice upgrade , are you going to do all 4 ? Is that the same GN you raced ? What about that Chevelle you picked up a couple of years ago ? Yes I'm writing a book ...Lol Tu Hermano from the lower 49

Hi "turbineborique"...yep it's the same GN I raced...I've had for 25 years now!
I'm doing all 4 wheels disc brakes, but from what Jack told me, the ones they received from Baer don't fit with aftermarket axles which have some c-clip eliminators and he was going to call them to ask what to do next...
As for the Chevelle, I drive it on nice days, enter a car show every now and then (I already won two first place trophies this year) and I plan to have the undercarriage detailed and do some chrome next winter.

see 'ya!

Claude.

P.S: Thank you Gerry for posting the pics!

hey Boss.... I spoke with Rick, nothing much we can do with the stock rear, short of major mods to fit the brakes. What we can do is, sell your rear, I spoke with Strange, they have an awsome dana 60 rear set up that will drop right in with Ford ends. Rick can send us another kit from Baer to drop right on. Give me a call, we'll get it going one way or the other.

Gerry, no problem...thanks again for the pics!
Just spoke with Jack a few minutes ago and now it looks like I'll be going with a new Dana "S 60" rear axle......on which the Baer brakes will fit I also asked Jack to try to sell my 10 bolt rear end (with Moser spool and axles, 3.42 gears, heavy duty pinion yoke...)...interested guys?...talk to Jack

Claude.

P.S: Gerry...You're going to have to take new pictures again when Brian will install the new rear end!...
