Looks good! I would recommend stainless steel brake lines.

Thanks! I'll do the rears later. I live in an apartment so I can't leave my car on jack stands to let the brakes dry for 24 hours. I'll eventually get the Supra rears and do them. I really needed new rotors & pads in the front so I just decided to upgrade everything.

@ Infamous 1: I was planning on the steel lines, but Goodridge is out of stock until mid June. I didn't want to wait as my front brakes are so bad right now. I'll put them on later. Just replacing the lines later won't be hard at all.

Supra rears fit the Gen 1 GS, but not the Gen 2. You'd need adaptor brackets, and they wouldn't be at all straightforward
