Well my winter project is almost complete. I installed 4 wheel disc brakes using 95 Corvette 13" rotors, and 72 Chevy truck calipers, front and rear. I'm using Power Stop crossdrilled rotors,( I like the looks better ), I got these through Summit at about $110 a piece. I got the front bracket template from PDQ (Thanks again), and I made the rear using the front as a guide. I cut the brackets out of 1/4" steel, using a chop saw and plasma cutter. The brake hoses were actaully about the same price as a loaded caliper, about $35. I'm using a master cylinder from a 2000 Chevy S-10, $100, as suggested by Mr. Pozzi and Kyle Tucker. I just need do a little more work on the brake hard lines, to the adjustible rear proportioning valve, and then bleed the brakes. I put Hotchkis springs in it, front and rear. Those went in fine. I didn't use the rear pads, and made a 1/2" steel plate to accept the center pin, since my rear is a mono spring rear. I also installed power steering using a box from Speedway motors. It's 3 turns lock to lock and only cost $150. I think the pump was about $80 from the parts store, I think it's a newer style pump to match the press on pully I have. I hope they work well together. Got the PS hoses from the parts store too. I had to buy the pitman arm and power steering coupler, both of which were about $70 each, ouch. I bought the PS pump bracket, crank pulley and PS pulley though March, I already had the serpintine conversion kit, so now I have a extra crank pully for just one belt. So far so good, I should have it finished in a couple days. But I can't move the car untill the 17" wheels get here, which take 2-3 weeks. My 16" Torque Thrust won't fit with the 13" rotors, the caliper hit's the wheel. I'll try to take some pictures soon and post them. So far so good, I just hope everything works together.
