    I thought he was referring to the T4 Lucas calipers in the pics I posted. Girling are different I think.

    If nobody can a supply for a rear kit I will build one.

    I gather the part that Mark supplies for his version is basically a mounting adaptor plate for the caliper?
    If this is the case - can't we simply copy this bracket.
    Someone do a CAD drawing.
    I'm happy to make my own if thats all it is.
    Like the front brakes - it was really a no brain-er to fit the G60 calipers.

    That's what I was offering, but can't just pull drawings out of thin air. Need the parts to measure to start with

    Sorry Nils, I thought you were making another based on the T4 Caliper - didn't understand you meant the same method/kit . ?
    I was under the impression that Marks caliper bracket was basically a piece of flat bar holding the caliper?

    It's not quite that simple Peter, I have seen these kits and they are not badly built really.

    Just spoke with Mark. He has 2 kits @ $330ea. This is for the brackets and all bolts required. They are made for T4 Lucas callipers. I can pick up from Mark but unless I get firm commitment I wont be laying out $660 to sit them on my shelf.
