Good luck!
chris

and from UstaB-GS549:
You need 21mm socket and 18" breaker bar for bolts. Turn wheels full lock to get torque wrench and good leverage. 125 ft-lb.

I push pads back with a heel bar and remove calipers first. It's a 15mm bolt and you need a 16-18mm (can't remember) to hold flats on pin after you break bolt loose.

I think you are supposed to use Loctite 271 Red on bolts or get new ones, but I never do.

Slotted/drilled rotors: This one thread pretty much says it all.

Default History of the Corvette name and symbol.

History of the Corvette Emblem





Over the years, the Corvette has gone through many design changes; some subtle, some not so subtle. The Corvette's symbolic crossed flags emblem has also seen its fair number of changes. If you've taken a close look at the emblem over the five generations of Corvette, you'll notice that even though the design has changed dramatically from time to time, a few design cues remain. These include some form of a checkered flag and a bow-tie emblem. From time to time, a strange, maple leaf type of insignia, called a "fleur-de-lis" also shows up from time to time in the emblem. So what does all this mean and how did it get started?

The original Corvette logo (Figure 1) was designed by Robert Bartholomew, an interior designer at Chevrolet in 1953. This emblem was destined to appear on the 1953 Corvette prototype which was introduced to the public for the first time at New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel in January of 1953. It had crossing staffs with the checkered flag on the right hand side, and the American flag on the left hand side. However, four days before the Corvette was to go on display at the show, Chevrolet management decided that it should be redesigned. The problem with the proposed emblem was that it included the American flag which is illegal to use on a commerical product. Right before the show, redesigned emblems were attached to the front hood and steering wheel of the Corvette. The new emblem contained the checkered flag on the right side as well as the white racing flag, red Chevrolet bow-tie symbol and a fleur-de-lis (Figure 2).

Where did the fleur-de-lis come from? At the time, Chevrolet was conducting research on various emblem designs for the 1953 and 1954 passenger cars. They looked at the Louis Chevrolet family history in an attempt to discover a crest or some type of heraldry that they could utilize. Unfortunately, they came up empty, but they did realize that Chevrolet is a French name and the fleur-de-lis (flower of the lily) is a French symbol meaning peace and purity. They decided to use the fleur-de-lis along with the famous blue Chevrolet bow tie on a new flag which replaced the American flag on the Corvette. When the 1953 Corvette first appeared to the public at the Waldorf Historia Hotel, the redesigned emblems were in place.

However, this emblem was temporary and used only for press photography at the show. A new emblem was designed prior to the 1953 Corvette going into production.

If you're wondering what ever happened to the original 1953 Corvette emblem by Robert Bartholemew, it's currently on display at the National Corvette Museum!

In the Green Hell and the "pucker" vid you have Mark, a.k.a 360Lemans doing the filming. Our friend and semi-pro driver Christe is in front in a Euro C5. In the green hell vid I'm already pulled over, and in the pucker vid that is the second carousel curve and I purposely left it early to see what would happen, that was a fun day!!!!!

Use metal polish.

Also, the tips are chrome coated Ti.

Thanks sshaddowz: Sorry it took so long. I could have worked longer on them to get a better shine and also if you work on them off of the car it will probably be alot easier. My digital cam started screwing up on me so they aren't as clear as i wanted. The last picture was taken old school with a 35mm slr. Hope they help.
