Added the Brembo decals. They don't look naked anymore.

Finally time for me to get in on this. Excuse the dirt after a heavy rainfall.

Brembos powdercoated Pearl White, high-temp decals and cleared:



Putting in washers to measure for the correct size spacer. I ended up with a 10mm hubcentric spacer on the front and rear. The rear wasn't required but I wanted to keep it neutral:



I love the comparison:



And more:













Setup:

2003 Evo VIII Brembo brakes
-Rebuilt and powdercoated pearl white October 2012

Stoptech stainless steel -4AN brake lines

Centric Premium slotted rotors with powdercoated wet black hats

Centric Premium ceramic brake pads

eBay billet aluminium 10mm hubcentric spacers and extended studs front and rear. Rears not required, just on for looks.

Drifz 304MB 18x8 wheels wrapped in 225/40/R18 Kumho Ecsta ASX tires.

The wilwood's have so much stopping power. They out perform my other vehicle's brembos (although my other car is much heavier.)

It's called the BBK show off thread. The number one most affordable/easily accessible is the Evo Brembos. Therefore by rules of percentages you'll see pretty much nothing but different Brembo combos. Now less talking and more pics, hence show off.

looking to upgrade this year with a new/used set done over in chrome with the project mu piston kit and chase bays SS lines along with new ti hardware and project mu full floating. The cherry on top will be the chase bays booster delete kit and hose tuck kit. As well as deleting ABS and going full manual. I'm ready!

Browsing this thread for inspiration, I noticed this picture.
For those of you doing this swap or replacing calipers,bleeder screws must go up! The crossover tube on this set up goes on the bottom. This caliper bolted to this side should go to the drivers side and vice-versa. The air bubbles will rise to the top; I doubt these ever got bled successfully.


Well, I am going to post pic's of my set up even though I'm junking the car in a week or 2...

My setup... Rota G-Force 18x8.5" I don't remember what size spacers I used... It was a long time ago, Gloss black powder coated Brembo's with custom decals and drilled and slotted rotors. Also stock brake lines.
