If I kept the drums, they'd need a complete overhaul ... so my thinking is ... instead of buying wheel cylinders and rotating drums ... just buy the rotor and caliper and, yeah a two port master cylinder. Be done with it. The difference in price is relatively insignificant (unless we're talking WilWood!) in the overall price to restore the car.

I"m liking the FSC594DCCS from TRS. Don't need the "flashy chrome" accessories ... don't want 'em really. Like those serpentine kits. My goodness the bling available. Nope ... just gimme powder coated black for ease of maintenance ... though I am looking hard at the cold case big radiator ... and evidently those are a bit flashy. But I don't want to have need of shades when I pop the hood to check the oil! LOL.

1961 Impala. 4 door. 283, turbo 350. Imron Midnight blue metallic with silver stripe.
