She's finally home

Evening all. Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of mine and my girlfriends new toy. As you all can see, she needs alot of work to get back on the road. But we're both up for the challenge. She's a 1967 HR Special with factory 186 and 2 speed powerglide. Drums all round. Only question i have at the moment is what's involved in changing to disc brake front. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers ray

Looks to be a great starting point.
If you are after a factory look, what you will need is:
1. HR Disc brake stub axles and discs and callipers (Rod Shop do sell change over modified drum brake stub axles with a disc brake kit of theirs)
2. VH40 booster and associated vacuum and fluid hoses and connections.
3. Smaller rear brake cylinders and possibly shoes.
4. Disc brake sized master cylinder.
5. HR Disc brake wheels (Original drum brake wheels don't clear the callipers)

If after something more modern the options are endless.

Paul.
