yes, I am pretty familiar with the CBB front conversion and will possibly try that this winter on my nova, but I hadn't heard of the CBB rear disks. I have rear disks on my Chevelle using the rear setup off a 78 Caddy fleetwood, but have had some problems with it. I couldn't get it to work real good, so I eventually took off the Caddy rear calipers and put on some cheap GM front ones. That helped, but now I think there is still a vacuum issue with the power brakes and i am considering the manual swap. Do you have a template or anything showing how you modified the Seville bracket? Why did you have to modify the bracket?
Another thing about the larger rear drums is that the rest of the system stays stock, unlike the rear disks where you need new master cylinder, new prop valve, etc. Plus, it is a lot cheaper!
