Looks good. Must be nice to be able to run tint on the side windows. In CA tint is only legal when it's behind the driver and even then, you're supposed to have a passenger side mirror.

Re: Drove it today!

Looks good. Hows the flex hoses on the brakes? May be the cause of the drag.

Thanks D! They are all new. I fixed it today. I had the rod going from the pedal to the master adjusted too long and it was keeping the piston pushed in a hair in the master. Guess I just didnít pay enough attention when I was doing the conversion.

I am now down to the alignment but itís supposed to rain the next couple days so I am hoping to get it done Thursday and take it home.
