Like I said on FB, looks awesome! Makes me excited to get my front brakes on my car. Got to wait
till spring though. I have no motivation to go work on my car in this cold, snowy Wisconsin weather
even if I do have access to a heated shop.

Thank you Jordan, Andy!

Well...they're on!! Big shout out to the guys down at Blood Enterprises for making the custom brackets.











I'll get some driving impressions next week if the weather permits -- right now it is just pissing rain.

Good lord almighty those are getting me wet.

Also, I'm glad I'm not the only person with a f***** up front fender. :lol:

Must be a trick of the light Blake, my front fenders are pristine...
I can see what you're looking at (at 12 oclock right?) and it is just a reflection.

Damn, well I tried to make myself feel better. I should've known better that there wouldn't be a dent anywhere to be found on that car!

Did you really think he would let there be a dent on this car? Anytime something is coming towards the car he probably gets out and stops it himself! <3

Well, it turns out that I need a new master cylinder after all. Pedal travel is way too long with these six piston calipers. The factory focus bore size is 15/16" and Baer is saying that I need a 1 1/16" master cylinder bore size to match the piston area of the new calipers. Working on a solution now. Will update when all is said and done.
Here's a preview pic of them installed:

Well that's kind of a bummer. How was the pedal travel before with the PBR 2 piston calipers? Good I assume?

Yes. It was normal with good feel. We're working on a viable cost effective solution as we speak.

I have a pretty decent update but I'm not going to post anything until the admins address the problems with disappearing/reappearing/redisappearing posts/threads.
Hopefully this will even show up on the board :(

You're fighting a losing battle right now unfortunately.
