Default Drum brake to disk brake conversion

Hello all, I recently got my 62 Falcon running again, and I am thinking about swapping out the drum brakes for disk. To reduce cost, I am planning to swap the front brakes first then do the rear at a later time. Question for the group is about the procedure, which of you have done a drum-disk swap before and can give some insight in regards to required tools, grease, etc. Thanks all!

Default brake swap

converted my 64 ranchero a year ago, went with the SSBC conversion kit. Basic one piston calipers, all i needed. They are great!!! The front conversion went as smooth as a model car kit assembly. Back kit was only slightly more difficult because of the parking brake and fender clearance.
