Hi Helmar, Welcome to the site!
That's a really fine looking Dodge you've got. I'm glad you've decided to rescue her.
The picture of the interior in your signature looks awesome! Totally classic. Whenever you have a chance, would you please post some more pictures of your interior? I absolutely love well done vintage interiors, and yours looks like it's a great one.
Is that ghost tribal striping on the sides?
You may find that it's cheaper in the long run to simply replace your rotors; new ones are only about $50 and in addition to providing you with uniform braking conditions, they'll come with the cones already pressed in. For that matter, it's pretty amazing how inexpensive brake parts actually are; I replaced everything (aside from the master cylinder & booster) front to back on mine, including the front and rear rigid and flex lines, and it was less than $200. The peace of mind is well worth it. The most expensive parts were the front flex lines and the rotors.
When you go to pick up calipers, please inspect them before you install them. I found major issues with damaged ways on rebuilds; the milled surface where the calipers slide on the adapters were frequently severely hosed. If there are any gouges or eaten out spots on the ways, get a different caliper.
When damaged, they could snag, causing accelerated wear or even pulling if they jam up badly. Believe it or not, I went through 5 or 6 at O'Rielly's before I found a 2nd good one! Some calipers were actually in hazardous condition, worse than the one above, and I pointed it out to the sales clerks rather vigorously! When they rebuild these, they basically just repaint them and slam in new rubber parts without doing any milling, so if there's any mechanical damage, it goes right along to the next sucker, er, I mean customer....
It looks like you have very same tube grille I do; mine was off of a mid 70's Dodge just like yours. I modified the daylights out of it to get it to fit inside the decorative trim on my 81 Dodge. Just this last week I finally welded stands on my radiator core supports to hold it; I'd be interested to see just how yours mount if you'd be willing to take pictures sometime.
I see you've got something else in place which I'd actually seriously considered doing - your venturi vent is mounted backwards. Does it seem to work OK like that to you? It would seem to me to be more aerodynamic overall, but the instructions and the US patent all show them pointed the other way to maximize the venturi effect.

It's what you learn after you know it all, that counts...
