As part of the conversion to modern wheels we wanted matching bolt patterns on the front and rear of this car. The standard Ford pattern is 5x4 1/2" which is what we had the rear end built with. In the front we swapped the old 5x5 1/2" rotors out for Dodge Aspen rotors.
We installed spacers, bearings and new caliper brackets from Magnum Axle which hold our GM metric calipers in the proper location. Factory replacement rotors from the local auto parts store round out the front brakes. We repainted the calipers with caliper paint containing ceramic for heat-resistance.
