    Hi everyone. I thought to myself the other day, it'd be cool if you could retain stock wheels or 15" wheels but have great disc brakes. I know you can use granada or stock style kh brakes to do that. But I thought I could do it better. Well I have done it. I have made a bracket that will allow you to mound 94-04 mustang v6 or gt calipers to your v8 spindles. You will use 68-73 mustang rotors on your car and then will my bracket you'll be able to bolt on 94-04 calipers. For i6 cars and or 68-73 disc spindles I'm working on brackets to do the same for you.

    We all enjoy reinventing the wheel. ;) I have a small collection of cars in my back yard. Got to looking at all the brake swap options out there, and I figured I could swap Lincoln Mk VII rotors to my '67 spindles (with a bit of help from the Timken bearing catalog). I have a '95 Taurus with similar brakes to the '94-'04 Mustang, and I thought, all I need is a bracket.....

    Nice of you to offer. I may need help, and your brackets look really nice. I'll let you know.

    Sorry didn't realize you said 61. Can you do me a favor and pull the drum and give me an estimate on center to center mounting and that on the bolts

    If you use that booster you'll need to move down your pedal pin. You'll want aleast a 1" bore master cylinder. If you don't do that you'll hate it your pedal will be way to soft almost to the floor.

    I'd go to mustangsteves site he sales the pin for the pedal and the plate that you have to weld to the pedal support or your firewall may flex and crack it's not very heavy duty metal
