Anyone know what's up with this guy? Still open?

Not responding to email -- just wondering if he's still around & selling brake stuff.

Ironic. I was trying to get in touch with him via email last week.

Kieth, you still around and reading this?

Wilwood calipers...*hint hint*

I think Kieth basically stopped doing most of his brake stuff as the new wilwood C3 stuff was basically a similar if not cheaper solution cost wise as what he was providing.

Thing is, I don't want bolt on replacements. I have 18" wheels and want to go to a larger rotor and some of the more performance oriented calipers without spending $5000 on a ready to go "kit". Need info on his brackets.

No, he was quite a bit cheaper. I know there was a $1,000+++ difference between his price and anything close to being comparable. For the 14" front rotors with aluminum hats, 6 piston brakes front brakes, dyanlite on stock size rotors in rear, brackets, pads, etc. came out to $3,000.

Do a search, I think someone posted CAD drawings of the brackets you want a few years ago. I think they were basically flat plates with some holes drilled in them. Once you have a drawing, scaling it for different calipers should not be too hard.

:agree: He was a good guy too along with being a Corvette enthusiast, and having great prices.

I am trying to contact him about some prices on current products, if he's still in the biz.

The number I had for him goes straight to voice mail, and he hasn't returned any emails as of yet.

Keith even posted that on another forum thats why he stopped doing the kits.
The new wilwood 13" set up with radial mount 6 piston SL6 up front, 4 piston SL4's in rear, pads, lines and two piece black coated hats and GT drilled/slotted rotors cost me $3200 from Wilwood.

I got my Wilwoods from Keith. Great guy, great service. I was planning on getting aluminum hatted 13" rotors and the brackets to mount my current Wilwoods, from him. If he is going to stop doing business, I need to get those sooner than later.

I just talked to keith on the phone. He's been very busy and his email hasn't been switched over.

I got a hold of him using the phone number on the website.

He recommended a few good places to get Wilwood stuff at good prices.
