Finally got around to finishing complete brembos 6/4

Nice work! Your TSW wheels, the stance, and the CTS-V brakes are just a perfect combination. Outstanding.

If I ever pull the trigger to go 275 all around, those 18x9.5 MGM Nurburgrings will be on my short list.

Ohhh I thought that is what the Squash brackets were supposed to help solve...allows you to use the existing e-brake.

Can you help clarify?

Thanks!

the brackets let you use the Camaro/cts-v rotor and allows for the caliper to mount in the correct location to work with the Camaro/cts-v rotor, as its much larger in diameter.

the inside hub of the Camaro/cts-v rotor is larger so the stock g8 parking brake shoe cannot reach. squash should be making new parking brake shoes though, in time for Christmas he says...

probably just the photos, while it does look pretty shiny in the light, it was pretty dirty when i took the pictures. i do full waxes 4 or 5 times a year probably, and claybar a few times whenever the surface feels bad. other then that just wash and dry by hand.
