Re: [DML] Brake upgrades

Years (and I mean YEARS) ago I read an article about this as well. The idea was to use the calipers and rotors of a European '80's Ford Granada, and according to the article, the parts would not require any modification at all. As an added "bonus" if you will, the track width of the front wheels was increased by almost an inch.
Since we are talking 30 years back, it is probably wishful thinking to find these parts.

Does anyone know if we can do a vented disk upgrade with as little investment as possible? I have found caliper spacers that are for our girling calipers that allow a wider vented disk. The trick is to source proper vented 4x100 pattern rotors that have the right offsets, and do not cost a whole lot. I think the volkswagen mark 1 and 2 golf will be a perfect fit? The stuff the vendors sell are all more than I am willing to spend. I found the caliper spacers for about $70 and the Disks from the golf at about $200 for the fronts. Not sure about the rear yet(one axle at a time haha) Any ideas?
