    Mike,

    Do those rear calipers have provisions for an emergency brake?

    They do not. Likely going with these...

    That stated, I'm in no rush as I have never needed a hand brake.

    Okay, I couldn't wait until winter to start on my brake project. I messed up the rotor grease seal on the passenger front side, so I am sidelined for a couple of days. If any Stalker owners are interested in buying my old front/rear disc brake setup, shoot me a PM.

    I recently put on some new tires and wheels. Enkei RPF1s, 17x9 front/17x10 rear. Tires are Toyo R888R 255/40-17 and 275/40-17s.

    Looks beautiful, and those are great wheels! I loved the RPF1s I had on my old Birkin.

    Mike, I see from these photos and from your Stalker gallery that you've wrapped your headers. How has that worked out for you? I'm thinking about doing mine and so I'm looking for insight. The frame rail above the headers gets quite hot on #27.

    I wrapped the headers to keep under bonnet temps down. To that end, the wrap really helps. The headers also have ceramic coating. As far as the frame rail goes, I applied DEI reflect-a-gold tape to the inside and bottom of the rail.
