Re: Coupe going to rear disc brakes

One thing I would be extremely cautious about is the brake master
cylinder; i would doubt if the orig. used on drum brakes would be proper
for discs.  I believe discs require significantly higher pressures; could
fiind that the fronts are doing all the braking.

If you know this already, well, goo!

 Heh, heh, heh.  Bought myself a little birthday present:  the rear axle
 & brake setup from an early Audi 90.  This is the solid beam with rear
 disc brakes, and should be a drop in replacement for the existing drum
 brakes on my Coupe GT.  Not that the drum brakes are bad or anything,
 I am just doing this because it _can_ be done.  :)

 '85 Coupe GT, goin' fer that '87 GT look
