Stage 3 - 1949-65 Volkswagen Beetle/Karmann Ghia C December 16, 2015
Reviewer: Tom James from Plumas Lake, CA United States  
Received all items in a very short span of time. Everything was included and Airkeweld continued to be available for questions well after all items arrived.  The brakes are amazing in terms of both looks and performance.  Car stops better than any classic I have ever owned.  The brakes look simply awesome underneath cream colored 5.5 front and 7.0 inch rear smoothies.  So good in fact, I just put the chrome caps away. Great quality and great customer support! tlj
