Unfortunately, beings how Ontario, have put so many pollution laws in place, that all of the chrome company's here went under. Ten years ago, there was well over a dozen places in Toronto alone. But no more.

Front bumper is installed. Fit like a glove.




Tomorrow, i'm going to install a power brake booster. It's an NOS kit i've bought on EBay a while ago. I don't like the feeling of non assisted brake so...

Does your camshaft produce enough vacuum to operate the booster ?

old set-up.



My Duster was born 4 wheels drum brakes, non servo, so it didn't have a proportioning valve. Just a distribution block. The rear wheels were prone to lock before the front. The new valve should take care of this.



Brake booster installed. Just have to modify brake lines.



2 supports brackets installed.

Wow looks very clean! Good job!
I used the truck wheel cylinders when I had drum brakes. Worked great with no lock up before front wheels locked up Stock bore is
( on an E-Body) 15/16" and the trucks is 7/8" (Raybestos WC37236, DORMAN W37236). If you find you still have trouble with the rears locking up first try the truck wheel cylinders maybe?
I now have the DrDiff rear disc kit ( small) works great too.
