RX7 calliper adapters

Hi All
I have a pair of adapter brackets to fit RX7 4 piston callipers to the Escort strut.
To suit a 283mm rotor.
These are similar to my own design although I have had these cut in 2 sections from mild steel but effectively perform the identicle function as my original alloy items (pictured also).
Come supplied with mounting hardware for the adapter and callipers.
$120 + post.

Update - image of calliper fitted to the actual adapter for sale added below.

    Hello Paul,
     Do you happen to sell these brackets at all?  I am interested in buying some, any help would be appreciated.

    Hi All
    Due to interest I will be producing another batch (5) of these steel adapters so let me know if you want to purchase.
    Estimated to be ready in about 4 weeks.

    Thanks Paul, that would be great. Do you also produce a rear bracket kit to suit a R31/Hilux diff combination?
     
    Regards

    Hi Troy
    I can do the Hilux option but I need the geometry of the housing and axles to do so.
    They will also be a one off so they might be a little more expensive.
    Let me know and we can sort something out.



    Cheers

    Hi Paul,
    I'll put my hand up for a set of the RX7 caliper adapters too please.
    (If there's any left that aren't already allocated of course).
    I've also expressed interest in the 'other' thread regarding the rear caliper adapters (R31 / Audi), so I'm happy to wait & buy both at the same time.
    Cheers, Jason.

    G'day Paul,
    Any news on the latest batch of the RX-7 caliper adaptors?
    Another query, the 283 x 21mm rotors that you originally used on this set up, were they RX-7 as well ?
    Sorry if I missed it, but I couldn't find a reference to the rotor type used other than the size, and I just wanted to make sure before I buy the rotors.
    Cheers, Jason.

    Hi Jason
    I have the adapters cut but I'm struggling to get time to do some final machining and get them to the platers.
    Apologies to those waiting.
    The 283mm x 22mm rotors are DBA275 from a Peugeot GTi-6 1997-1999.
    They're also the same as a Citreon Xantia 2.0i 1993 - 2002.
    I also found a place online who sell vented variants but i can't recall the name.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Is it possible to make some for an e30 260mm disk? Or have you got a cad/make a cad of it?

    Hi
    Unfortunately without having the required components on hand it's difficult to assess what changes I need to make to suit the 260mm rotor.
    Basically I need to know what offset is required to suit this rotor (to centre the calliper on the rotor) and the distance from the centre to a perpendicular line though the mounting points of the calliper.

    Cheers
