Well I'm kinda bummed. I had thought I was going to get the last of my parts I need on Monday. Well the last of them come in Wednesday. So instead of getting all the brakes installed this weekend and Mon/Tues, it's going to have to wait until the following weekend. I should still have it done by the end of the month.

Kind of irritated right now...

So just looking around the net and finally found the price of the ZL1 set up from Chevy... http://www.crateenginedepot.com/Cama...0815C1009.aspx and http://www.crateenginedepot.com/SS-V...0817C1009.aspx let me just say...

I did the same thing with MY choice of color and decal plus HPS pads, SS lines, and RB racing high temp boots and seals for roughly $2300...

Retail on the ZL1 kit is like $6600 and discounted is still $5600 or so.

Also the JDP kit which would have been similar to what I did but no used parts would have been $3500...

The rotors came out fine... I'll snap pics after they are assembled. I'm letting the paint cure, since I have so much time now.

The new brakes look sweet! Where did you get the 1LE decals from? Looks like getting the CTSV setup is the way to go. You would think the Cadillac parts would be more expensive since the car costs quite a bit more than the ZL1.

Mike the Powder Coater did the whole thing. I supplied the jpeg for the 1LE which I got off of some thread here.

As far as the parts go I just waited patiently and snagged a deal here and there off of ebay and this forum. Then got a couple of things from my buddy at the dealer and then some vendor stuff. I did a rough total and came in at roughly $2300 no more than $2500. If you take your time which there is no reason other than lack of patience to not take it you can do similarly.

As it stands right now I should get the last parts (brake pads) Wednesday and the first chance I'll get to do the install will be Sunday. Thankfully my Dolphins play Monday night otherwise the brakes would have to wait.

You can't mess with football...

I just came off shift so I'm ass beat tired, it's done though. I need to snap pics and clean up the wheels since they're off.

Road test might not be until tomorrow.
