Brake calipers fresh from powder coat

With all my brake parts back from getting powder coated I set about putting them together. The new pads and new rotors were a bit tight so I scuffed a little off the pads and everything works great in the back end. I assembled the front calipers and put them on a shelf until I get my engine assembly in place since the front suspension hangs on the cross member which is not currently in the car. This is a bit of a day for me as the rear brakes are the last missing bit of the back end... well, except for tightening everything up and triple checking connections. All the fasteners on the rear suspension are just hand tight for now as the car has to be loaded when I tighten everything the final time. 
Tomorrow? Assemble and clean the rest of the transmission.
