I just read a listing on the forward look site that Roger is looking for someone to take over the business as he is apparently looking to sell all of his tooling etc. to anyone willing to start making his parts for him. Most of the parts are bought over the counter such as the rotors, calipers etc. I guess the main design part of his product line would be the brackets that in some cases are needed to be welded in place.
The normal AAJ Brake system for our Chryslers is a very simple bolt on affair that can be unbolted in the future to return to the “Center Pain” style drum brakes. In case you wanted your car to be absolutely original. But, that said, the incredible improvement from the Disc Brake system is absolutely amazing. For instance, if I am getting off the freeway on the off ramp and need to clamp down hard on the discs, I immediately look up into the rear view mirror to watch for modern cars behind me that might not realize how fast my car will stop and that they might plow into me from behind.
I cannot tell anyone in the club how much of an improvement it has made. And you can use either 14 or 15 inch wheels that will fit as long as the bolt pattern is correct. He also offers a kit for the Imperials which (as I recall) uses a different 5 bolt - bolt pattern.

I also did the AAJ front conversion kit. It was a very simple conversion, and I am very pleased with the results in every way on our C. It came with a proportioning valve which we mounted just ahead of the LR wheel/axle so we could get at it easily for initial adjustment. But to finally tune the front-to-rear balance just right I still had to install a check valve at the rear.
I did an AAJ conversion on my 57 and it allowed me to keep the original wheels.
