14 Kunda then moved to the front by installing the caliper bracket to the spindle.
15 He then installed the rotors and calipers.
16 We opted for Wilwood’s manual master cylinder and new combination proportioning valve ($362.64 for everything). This valve comes with the mounting bracket, brake light switch, and stainless tubing to attach it to the master cylinder. It fits perfectly and is a cinch to install.
17 Aerospace Components makes this billet aluminum adapter bracket to fit the Wilwood master to your Mustang’s firewall.
18 Classic Tube made us a set of custom stainless steel brake lines. We made mockups using wire coat hangers and shipped them to Classic Tube. They copied them and shipped them to us within a week.
19 These lines come pre-flared with fittings and fit perfectly.
20 After routing the lines, Kunda clamped them in place to prevent the lines from rattling or rubbing the chassis. We used stainless steel self-tapping screws to attach them.
21 In the rear, we made brackets where the hard brake lines attach to the braided stainless hose.
22 We then tightened all of the fittings.
23 Here’s the rear complete.
24 Here’s the left front complete.
25 Then we added Wilwood’s high-temp brake fluid and bled the brakes.
