Welcome to the forum Ben! Sounds like a interesting project! :cool:

Have you started cutting and welding yet or are you still in the planning stages?

Hello, Ben and welcome to MLMF!

From a compilation of other builders, it's my understanding that the best setup for steering breaks is the use of two, separate brake master cylinders plumbed to rear calipers and rotors that work the rears. In the long run it may be a better option price wise too.

I've never done it myself though :).

Do you have any pic's of your candidate?
