Default Mustang calipers on FG cars

We have had alot of inquiries from FG owners about adapting the Mustang 6 piston calipers to the front of the FG cars and will be able to supply a pair of brackets with 2 piece 380mm rotors soon.
I know this has been done before and we were involved in some ways without selling them previously and i also know other people have and made them but the difference is, we will not be running spcaers on he bearing hub to change the track and this will also allow the rotor and wheel to still locate on the factory hubalso no upright mods.
There will be no machining or drilling and tapping of the FG uprights for fitment either. The kit will be dearer than most of these other kits as we will be custom making a alloy hat using a 380mm 2 piece rotor not the 1 piece mustang rotor.
If anyone is interested or wants to ask any questions please feel free.

All our brackets are 6061 material and in most cases we will also get the bracket hard anodized for protection. The custom alloy hats made for this kit are also done.

We are making to order at this stage and depends on if you want to purchase new calipers from us or would want to use your own but the caliper needs a section machined out for clearance.

I do have a used pair, how much will it be just for the adapter kit. having any template to remove the caliper bits would be great?

thanks

The caliper needs machining of the body for clearance and we should be able to provide that info i beleive. The one sets of custom brackets and custom alloy hats along with the DBA5000 380mm slotted rotors would be about $3500 at his stage. This may change with volume of manufacturing.
