Brackets are sent off to the respective testers. We should know in about 3-5 days if the brackets need any more modifications.

I'd offer to test (thanks, Jim ) but you're really far away from me. Since BigJim and Demon are really close, I'd say schedule a test fit with them. I do have Focus SVT front brakes on my car. I also have rear Contour SVT hubs on my back porch; so test fitting the rears would be a snap; I wouldn't even need to take the wheels off.

Looks like the front brakes brackets are gonna work!

BigJim has finished the test and it needed a little trimming on the one edge like I suspected. I'll take the tracing he sent me back down and have them make the corrections.

I'm just waiting on the other bracket to get to Ray and him to test it, but I'm more confident in the rear bracket as it looked like it came out really good.

AT this point I'm ready to start a group buy. I still have to check on a spacer cost but I'll try to do that Monday or Tuesday and it won't affect the overall price a whole lot one way or the other.

Thanks for being patient.

Well then you're [censored]'d!!!

lol unless Ray tells me the brackets are good.

You guys do know the rear brake adaptation require some brain power and intermediate level skill right?
of course, who in here wants to admit they don't have "some brainpower" heheheheh.

I think the rears will be fine.
