Well, the time came to move it from the saw horses in between the house and garage. It's now resting in a garage. Hope the guy who has it takes good care of it.

Also got my dimpled/slotted rotors painted up today. Planning to install them next weekend. Anyone have any suggestions for a good pad for these? and how do you know which is left/right?

Mine were marked, but if you can't find any markings....mine are on with the fins pointing up as they rotate forwards. The one at the end of the wagon would go on the left side. The picture is from my 89 GT front right wheel.

It doesnt matter which way the rotors go on. I've seen them both ways. As far as pads I have posi quiet ceramics with drilled and slotted rotors. Love them.

Like I said, mine were marker Left and Right on the boxes they came in and with a letter "L" and "R" stamped on the inside of the rotor. The slots are supposed to brake up the gas build that builds up between the pads and rotor as they get hot. The cross drilled hole are supposed to carry the heat away from the hub. If they spin the other way would draw the heat to the hub. Check out any web site that sells them. I know they are saying that the "dimpled" style are stronger then the "drilled" style now.
I'll look for that web site I got mine on.

EBCbrakes.com and I found a video on you tube stating that they are "directional"
ocautoports007 on you tube and their web site is ocautosports.com

what i found out about the rotors, the slots on the outside don't make any difference. they do not determine the direction. the fins in between the braking surfaces do. some are angled, others are straight. these are straight, so it is purely my preference which way they will go on.

the one on the end will go on the driver's side.

i just walked in and saw how empty the area is where the bed was.....i miss it already. i cannot wait to get it back. i told the guy i wouldn't call and bug him about it, but i may have to!

Well, i kinda forgot about this thread. The bed is coming along. no new pics, but i may be getting up to the shop sometime this week. basically, it is done other than frenching the tails. everything is smooth, nice gaps, flanges made to bolt the roll pan to the bedsides, and he extended the roll pan to it actually fits against the inner bed. so hoping to get it back in a week or so. he dropped one taillight and the wiring off today so i can modify a ranger tail light harness to work with the lights. I CANNOT WAIT!
