    All depends on what kinda job I land out of school. Either sell it, or fix all the little stupid things and keep it for a daily driver, and baby whatever else I get...

    Now that my slicers are finally on:thumbsup: I can think about getting busy on my '95 brake upgrade. I have the front spindles, caliper brackets and calipers coming from Al Fitz. I hope to maybe get some time to upgrade those pitiful brakes in the near future. I won't have a lot of time this year because I'm going to be a tracking maniac with my new Cobra "R" :beer:

    I really have just scratched the surface on this upgrade and have not done a ton of research on it yet. I'm taking it in baby steps.

    Is the '96 the V-8? Sorry, I'm a little out of touch with my SHO. I have been sidetracked with tons of projects the last several years and unfortunately none of them have been performance vehicle related :( But, I'm changing all of that now. :)

    'Preciate the help! :beer:

    Thanks for the comeback. Now that I'm at the office where I keep all my records, I looked in my SHO folder and found I have the '95 spindles on the way. I just need to buy new rotors and pads for 96-99 SHO.

    I'm not sure when I'm going to have the time to do it put at least I will have the parts here when I am ready to proceed.

    Thanks for clearing up the muddy water for me:thumbsup:

    some of the wild and crazy guys have modified to put another set of 96s in the back. They've also done a Cobra front package too, now that is sweet!! BTW AC, you'll also need the 96-99 brackets too.

    Zach, WTF do you need an engine rebuild for? The YAMAHA isjust BROKEN IN at 100k!!!!! Slap yourself for me.

    I plan on doing nothing but maintenance on my 90 SHO MTX in 2003. The AC doesn't hold a charge, the temp control is stuck on HOT, and the lights in the radio are burned out, BUT I still enjoy this car for short trips around town, and parking in places I won't drive my Cobra. It's my bad weather car, and still drives nice, with only 77k miles.
