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...

So I went out to bed the pads. I think the pass rear is dragging and the pedal feels mushy. So I have to bleed them some more in the morning. I'm wondering if the bleeding will fix the dragging.

Any opinions or ideas?

When you calipers come back to you from the powder coater, did you have to re-assemble them?

Before you bleed again, double check the rear caliper assembly and verify the pads are correctly installed.

Yeah Pete I rebuilt them with RB brakes boots and seals. The pads seem to be right. I'll have to search out some pics and verify.
