Default Help wanted identifying v8roadster brake brackets

Looking at buying some seconds hand wilwoods with lines and brackets and the seller is selling them for someone else and seems to be a bit clueless. From the one photo I've seen of the brakes I've narrowed it down to v8roadster brakes.
Big Brake Conversion

Now, the brackets are the more triangular ones in the photo above, the ones that rotate the caliper's position a little. Are those brackets for the front or rear brakes?

Just want to confirm because the seller seems to think the kit is designed for 12"+, doesn't know who they are made by and generally not know much about them at all. So it wouldn't surprise me if he was selling rear brakes thinking they were for the fronts.
Cheers

The picture of the calipers in question:


V8R kit (seems pretty clear which pair of brackets these match, I'm just not sure if they're the front or rear on this kit)


After comparing the adapter brackets of front BBKs to the rear I'm even more concerned these might be rear brackets by the shape of them. But it would be great if someone with more knowledge could help me out.

Also these don't come with rotors for some reason. So does anyone know if the hats in these V8R kits are custom or at least interchangeable with a wilwood hat? If its compatible I've narrowed it down to a few with the right holes and width for the studs.

Again any help would be appreciated.

Inside (more triangle-like) brackets in this pic are the rears.



V8R hats do not have the same offset as most wilwood hats I've seen. Something like .94 V8R vs .75, but don't quote me on that. IMHO don't bother with it. Plenty of quality 11" and 11.75" front kits out there now with wilwood hats.

<-- V8R brake kit owner who regrets purchase.

Thanks for the response, props. Seems like they're are intended for the rear and also more effort than they're worth.
Im in Australia so postage makes things exponentially more expensive, thats why I was looking at 2nd hand local items. But instead I'll talk to a vendor about cheaper/slower postage alternatives.
