Also for this RC Badge remake...I need to know how much demand there is for them before I make a run at it.

Unfortunately I don't, I know the VIN's weren't sequential so there's no way for me to know without the badge.

I'd buy one. You should start a separate thread and I'm sure more people would see it.

So I finally did it!

I picked up a pair of front ST205 calipers and a set of ST205 rear calipers.

Front:

Rear:

I am going to pick up a pair of IS300 front rotors tomorrow and drill them to 5x100 and see if that works.

I'm such a sucker for this car :p

How do you plan on bolting on the front calipers?

Without having them here yet. I read that the bolt holes for the front are in the same position for both. I think I just have to run a bolt with a nut on one side to hold it on. I also have to split them open to run this bolt apparently.

Since your good at drilling you can get around needing to split your calipers. You make a bar that goes behind the ears and drill then thread them.

So, to get around this I just held the nut with a wrench from behind and put the both through.

I'm having trouble with stabilizing the hub because it is 60.1 from the 54.1 so it oscillates. I ordered some bore rings that should stabilize this.
