materialize?

sorry, rusman already has a set special fabricated right now, and has been running since who knows when. he just needs to tell the fab guy to make some more.

This sounds like a pretty good deal though, I'd certainly would have entertained this offer when I was shopping around.
If they were any cheaper I'd redo my brakes just to be able to run wil's
Dan I know ya always gotta add to a thread.

When it comes down to caliper brackets,I would rather have strength over weight savings.

You can do what I did,just slowly gather the parts you need,a piece at a time(or pair).

If the stock 01+ sport brakes fit the panasports,then this should fit too.I know the Wilwoods calipers are smaller in dimension than the Mazda caliper.

The Chikara BBK fits the really tight Enkei RPF1 15x7 with a 35mm offset.

That would be Martin that does the V8 conversions,but he sells the brackets at $650.

I can get the brackets made cheap, but would need to get some serious interest/paid persons before I invest the money in wilwood Calipers and pads to make brackets for 2 people.

I guess someone needs to make a bracket for the rear for using rx7 calipers.

Crap! I came to this thread after I heard I could get Chakira for $250. Now I find out it's just for brake parts...

i know this thread is old, but FM has caliper brakets for 100 bucks a pair, you have to call them though they dont list it on web site. I got in touch with them this year in January and he said when I was ready just call him and order it
