Where the hell can you find the cebco kits? Cebco doesn't have a webby do they?
If these kits come in cheaper than rbs/hoppers/upc kits ill definitely be interested.
On a side note, new wheels for e series are becoming scarce now, at least where I've been looking. Might be worth changing to au+ offset...


Believe Cebco was bought out by Race Brakes.

The cheapest on the market is UPC. Race Brakes Sydney do an E series offset all others are +25 or AU/BA.


Which RB shop? Melbourne or Sydney? I am yet to find out definitively which one did. I dont think it was RBS, as I have been in contact with Matt personally & he is unable to fit a C4 Caliper (Which is what Cebco used) onto an e-series upright. Something about needing to drill into the upright & this would weaken it. As well as other "centreline" issues (centering the rotor to the direct centre of where the pads meet). But in saying this, cebco did it, so what's the issue? Matt knows of another kit that did use a C4 Caliper & standard upright, but was expensive & he cannot remember who it is. I think it was cebco.

This is especially dissapointing due to the fact that I have a Genuine pair of Tickford Twin pot C4 calipers, & at this moment waiting on delivery of a set of genuine ELGT wheels for my NC Fairlane.

All these people claiming "Go-AU offset", when you got a good or nice set of wheels, you want to keep them. The only other considerations I had were for EB GT wheels, FBT Speedlines, or Maybe, & I do Stress MAYBE was BF GT-P's. But good 19" tyres are expensive. Especially when you throw in a track day or two. Most (and I mean around 95%) post AU wheels on E-Series look try-hard.

Anyway, I digress.

What is the progress of the OP's venture. Really looking to fill the space that will be made by a set of ELGT rims.

I also know of a member on another ford forum site whose mate uses modded uprights, C4 calipers & mustang rotors on his track EB. He is looking into it for his own EB. SO not all is lost. Someone just needs to keep looking into it. We will get there eventually.

Use Corey's thread gearbox-suspension-brake-driveline-f4/machining-stub-axles-budget-big-brake-build-brakes-on-t112322.html as a reference, and do your own.
