    I don't know how much you like doing it yourself but i fitted EA falcon rear discs...a bit of judicious grinding and drilling...maybe $200 inc new pads and rotors

    My calipers look like that, Lucas 38s?

    What handbrake cable is that? Are there different t3 cables? Mine has the spring liner at the end (which I can cut etc.) but moreover the liner is too short so I’d need to space it about 15cm at one of the ends.

    Phil - your's in photos - are using Mark's adaptors?
    Does anyone know if Mark is still selling these?
    I brought all the bits last year - Calipers and rotors to do this job but never brought the adaptor plates?
    I'd like to finish this if possible

    Yes, I had there same problem, rang him up, had my credit card ready to buy straight away and ended up getting pissed around for the next three months. Just gave it up as a bad joke.

    When you refer to Lucas Calipers are you referring to the G60 Girling calipers as used on Audi. ?
    I have the G60's on the front of my Syncro.
