Modifying Corvette C5 calipers for the Avanti chassis


Recommended Posts

We are working on installing 13" Corvette C5 disc brakes on our stainless Avanti chassis.

One of the things necessary is to remove the cast Corvette logo from the calipers. :lol:

We may have a die cut vinyl label with the Avanti logo installed, or perhaps Studebaker, or may leave clean of any logos. What would you do?

If it was me I'd save my money and skip the stickers, The heat generated under "Spirited" driving conditions isn't going to leave them looking very attractive for very long.

You could start with the Mustang Mach 1 calipers like I did for my 13" "Cobra" brake

setup for the Studebaker chassis. Its the "same" caliper & plain black - no logo.

Since you already removed the logo .. just have it anodized black, or heat paint.
