What’s the best way to convert rear drums to disc on a 69 Mustang. Buy a kit from? Or scour the junk yards? Really not interested in a set of 800$ Wildwoods for this application.

the easiest way is to get a decent kit that has everything you need. the next best way it to get the brackets from someone like https://www.mustangsteve.com/product-category/rear-disc-brake-conversion-brackets/ or https://scarebird.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=65 the mustang steve page has just rear disc kits, the scarebird page has both from disc kits and rear disc kits listed.

understand that these are just the brackets, you still need to get the indicated calipers, rotors, and other parts.
