Scarebird Disc Brakes Conversion

Wanted to pass along my experience with the Scarebird brake conversion on my 1963 Fairlane. I did a lot of research beforehand because I wanted a low cost setup with easy to obtain replacement parts. Scarebird sells you the brackets which bolted to the stock spindles and a list of off the shelf parts to complete the conversion. The brackets are made of heavy gauge steel and coated. Fit and finish is excellent and assembly was very easy! Wish I had taken more pics to document the process but I was done in under 2 hours except bleeding the system.

Where did you find Scarebird?

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

They have an Ebay store and have conversion kits for many 50's-60's Fords and other makes.
