disc break conversion

I have a 99 civic and want to put disc breaks in the back, has any one here done this? and if they have how hard is it to do? Thanks for any help.

Oh, I thought JDM calipers were gold and North American ones were silver for some reason.

I'm doing the same swap for a friend right now, except on a eg, I got the rear trailing arms and everything. I wanted to know ifI could re-use the parking brake cable and brake lines in the rear?
