Holy crap, Stott Hare is alive?
Sorry, not much constructive to add to this other than that :)

> -----  Thanks Stott,  I have the right size wheels, 17",  the rotor thickness of the rotor from which the caliper came is 32mm.   I was thinking that there are some Audi rotors that size.. I don't know how much the rotor thickness can vary and still work... I am sure I will have to have some brackets made.  The price is pretty good, I think, at  $400.00 for the pair with pads.... It is an online sale , so I am trying to be as sure as I can before I buy or they get sold to someone else....  Stephen Redford  '85Urq needing a "Good" 5000tq head (MC??) and wanting Brembos.
