Car looks awesome....

My car is similar...White '92 Conv.
I want to do a similar conversion....
How tought was it to do?
I've seen the calipers on ebay, whre did you get all the brackets etc?
I have the standard 12" rotors f&r, and would like to do the 13"front upgrade.
Any details would be greatly apreciated.

I do not believe it is a tough conversion, but I took the easy route and had a local vette shop do the work. They got in done in a little over 4 hours. You just cannot buy the C5 calipers, you need adaptor brackets for the front. I also replaced the rear calipers with red and black powder coated ones to match the front. You can get the complete set up with pads, and stainless steel brake lines from Vette Brake Products. I just did not like the plain rotor that came with their kit ($1,300). So I purchased everything but the 4 rotors, and went to Baer. So my total out of pocket without installation was around $1,500.

Did the same upgrade here...and got the entire package and slotted rotors from VB&P. I had the rears powder coated red.

I am jealous yours is on the ground and running. I can't wait to see how they react once I have to nail the stop pedal.

The trick is, if you have a 88-96 model, you will have to use the factory (ZR1 style - A mod) - or an after market front wheel. If you have a 84-87 you still have to go to a minimum of 17", but can still fit a 91-96 saw blade rim if needed (if nothing more than rolling stock while you build the car).

I had some killer spacers made from VB&P and am slamming 18&19 competition gray C6 wheels on the car.

Forgive the nasty condition of the paint in these pics...heck, there isn't even an engine in it right now:
