Well after upgrading the front brakes with the Elantra parts it made the tiny rear drums look even worse. Timing couldn't have been any better because 2.0pwrdc50 was parting his puke green turbo Colt and I immediately jumped on the factory rear hubs and brake brackets (Thanks again man!). After replacing the rotors with matching slotted ones it was on. Pressed in some new bearings and seals in the hubs and slapped on my stainless lines from RRE and this is the end result.

Here's a few shots of the whole car. Finally got the windows tinted.

Here are a few interesting pointers for those wanting to do this mod. DSM emergency brake cables will work with a little imagination. The little tubes inside the car that the cables slide into need to be pryed open a little because the ends on the DSM cables are a little larger. Also if you own an 89 or 90 C/S/M your rear brake line brackets actually bolt on with two bolts. Later models are part of the rear beam. Anyway you can use DSM brackets and metal hard lines. I simply took the original bracket off and made a template of it's mounting holes out of paper, I then lined up the bottom template hole with the bottom hole of the DSM bracket and marked and drilled a new top hole. Now the DSM brackets will bolt right on to the Colt's axle beam. 1g DSM FWD brake lines will also work but you have to reuse your existing banjo bolt, brass washers and the little thing that the bolt goes through. The rear FWD lines thread right into these and bolt to the caliper. Last but not least, FWD DSM rear calipers are the same as turbo Colt/Mirage rear calipers. The calipers you see pictured are actually off of my 94 turbo laser.

Almost have a full turbo interior now thanks to Bill and Paul for the seats.

Thanks man! I just looked through my statements online and I ordered them from a place called Speed Solutions (714)228-9101. They were $209 shipped for all 4. They will quote you a little higher but you can haggle with them.
