Started back on the Wagon today. I was in Phoenix this weekend attending Barrett Jackson and a hockey game! The Governor of AZ lifted the mask requirement Friday but most venues and stores still required them. I wore mine anyway! I don't get vaccinated until Wednesday.

Started putting the disc brakes on. Seems pretty straight forward. Would help if they would have included instructions. But I got this!
Brakes lines are really close I just need to plug one hole in the junction for the front brakes. Didn't need to bend new ones.
The rear I just need to lengthen the existing line to the master cylinder.
The only thing so far is I had to grind a tiny bit off one corner to get it to fit around the steering arm.

Had to put a spacer on the spindle for the rear bearing. The rotor and caliper fit well!
No clearance issues although they are close with 15" wheels.
