Finally got my front rotors dialed in - about .003 runout both sides.  Good enough for gov't work (and I do work for the gov't Smile).  Just kept at it with different thicknesses of brash shim stock.  Here are some pics of one of the calipers mounted.  In an earlier post someone wanted to see if you could see the red calipers through the slots in a rally; answer: sort of.  I think a 'vette guy would notice if he were really looking.  Still cool, though - they match my Firethorn (that's red for you non-76'ers) interior.

Thanks for the encouragement, guys.  And thanks for the advice that the three pages of this thread represent!  I'm not sure where I'd be without this forum, but it probably wouldn't be here. Not sure I would have had the courage to tackle some of these projects without this group to lean on.  

Rich: no test drive yet.  Still no engine.  (Or transmission, or steering gear, or master cylinder, or instrument panel, I could go on all day)
