hi, i am 17 years old boy from finland and i have 1958 chevrolet brookwood with 350 small block, wich is my first car
i already have air suspension and interrior done.
i am looking forward to upgrading my steering, brakes to powered ones.
going to do steering and brakes first because engine is too expensive at the moment.
also going to do engine upgarde later, maybe next year engine is going to be LM7 wich fits my budget
i use 15 inch wheels so my disc brakes should fit those but dont really know what kit to use any suggestions?
Steering is new to me and dont really know anything so if anyone has any ideas on what powered steering kit to use.

You have posted to a site where most of us are interested in keeping our Chevys original. There might not be much info here for you.
Good luck with your project. I hope someone can help you.

Hi shushiboy,

Welcome! It is good to hear of young person who is a gearhead!!

As Mike mentioned, most of our club is strives for preservation and restoration. However, there is a group of folks that modify their Chevys within our ranks. You can find their discussions under Personalized Modifications. Here is a link to that group of discussions: https://vccachat.org/ubbthreads.php/forums/86/1/personalized-modifications.html

Cheers, Dean
