Smile Disc Brake conversion 69 Camaro

Wanting some thoughts on converting a original 69 Camaro RS convertible.
It has power drum brakes wanting to change to stock original disc brakes.
Has a 10 bolt multi leaf, thinking to change to a stock original 12 bolt.
I like numbers matching so would be as close to original as possible.
The car is stock and original (besides color change) but no paper work.
Thanks

Adding disc brakes makes your car more reliable and comfortable to drive, plus not being a trailer queen makes the conversion a no brainer IMO.

If it makes you feel better, I happen to be adding disc brakes and power steering to a RAII firebird dealer race car.

I have some rebuilt disc brake booster / MC combos
Rebuilt and ready to go- for 69 Camaro but not numbers matching- cheap
I have calipers and dust shields as well
I also have all numbers matching original assembly line pieces but it’s not worth the extra cost for what you are doing and 90% of the public would never see or know the difference
Text me for Picts if interested
