There is also something to be said for keeping whatever was originally in the car--Lockheed from #14064 on and Girling before. That way there will not be any confusion about what parts to order if someone other than yourself ever has to work on them.
Apparently the previous owner of #19250 missed that memo, as it has the earlier Girling brakes installed. :) That said, the Girlings are very easy to work on and adjust, and parts are readily available.
