The 1973 bug I am converting to a C11 came with discs up front and a leaking master cylinder; needless to say I'm going to have to replace nearly all of the braking components on the car.
For wheel cylinders should I follow the advice of Hibbard in the baja bugs book and run a 17mm in the front and 22mm in the back? What about 22mm cylinders all the way around (I like the idea of one part that fits all four corners of the car).
On the master cylinder, should I stick with the stock 19mm bore or upgrade to something larger?
Thanks in advance, I need to replace nearly all of the brake components on the car and I'd prefer to get it right the first time!!

SCR15 Brakes Original VW type 1 drum brakes only on all wheels. Front and rear drums may not be interchanged. Any combination of brake linings allowed as long as stock dimensions are maintained. Any combination of VW master and wheel cylinders are allowed.
Mine are all stock sizes and locations. Slowing down a Class 11 is not a problem. Its getting them to go faster that's the hard part!
