C5 brake project

I finally dug my car out of my dads barn, where it has been sitting since 05. I have had this car since I was 17. Itís seen multiple motor & trans configurations. Itís current state is a 96 LT1 with a 350 turbo. I bought c5 calipers probably a year before I parked it & Iím starting the project thought I would show my progress. I had a buddy cut the brackets from his CNC plasma table
