Hi Matt
Can you make a run of these adapter brackets?
http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/124495- ... -on-a-s30/
Possibly a little cheaper than this as I can buy my own bolts and don't need the anodize.

This would be good for a 510 guy that has 280zx struts and wants to run the z32 brakes and keep 4 lug.

They made those brackets for a 296mm rotor.. too big for 510. I was thinking if you could make them work for a 280mm rotor using the aluminum 1990 N/A Z32 caliper. The 2003 hyundai sonota rotor is 280mm tall and 26mm thick. Which would be perfect for this set up. If I send you a caliper and a rotor, could you fab a bracket up from that?

How soon do you need this stuff back?

I am under a few pounds of production ATM. I want to make these though.

I am in no hurry.. i only have the calipers. I could just ship the caliper to you. Than you can borrow a cheap rotor from autozone and return when you finished with mock up. So we wouldnt have to ship a rotor back and forth. Pm your shipping address if that is okay with you.

Also the closer we can get the rotor and caliper to the strut tube, the better. That way the face of the wheel clears the caliper.

Caliper looks close to strut mounting ears.. I wonder if it is even possible to get it closer to use a 280mm rotor? Maybe 296mm is the smallest?
