what wheels are you running? I'm not sure which one but I had a feeling one of the ebay kits gave a weird offset that was like 20+ or something?

Yes I wasn't sure if there was some other mob doing kits on ebay too? (mr spares or something like that?) Regardless I never looked into them further after seeing that had an offset neither pre au or normal.

UPC (Mr Spares) offset is either 20 or 28mm.
Seems that the 28mm is fine with 19x8s with 245s though...

Mr Spares aka UPC kit is crap when it comes to offset as a true AU onwards offset is 35mm and not everyone is completely happy with there kit.

Im sure my engineer/fabricator will come up with something good as he already has 40 other brake kits available plus all the 9inch conversions, mini and full tubs, roll cages he has done so were in good hands.

what Twin Piston Caliper's are you looking at using?

I'm thinking I'd like to do similer to what BenJ is doing, and I'd just buy the bracket's off you so it works.

That or I Just buy a brand new Caliper from you, would you be able to chuck in a set of braided lines aswell?

We will be using a twin spot PBR caliper so that replacement pads are off the shelf and can get them from anywhere

We should be mocking up in the next couple of weekends so ill push to have it ready ASAP

Just another update guys i have also traced down a standard 329mm rotor so it dosent have any slots or cross dilling so there will be 2 rotor choices and obviously the standard non slotted will be a cheaper again

can you make a bracket to fit two stock E-series callipers on a stock rotor, for essentially double the stopping power

This is what i want.
