I am fairly sure that dat2kman could give specific advice about getting the ford calipers on.

Imackz in that link just above looks like he got it!
You can redrill those doscs to 4 stud, just pick one existing hole ( they are 5x114.3 pcd) and drill 3 more at 12mFalcons are 1/2", so the hole you dont drill will be loose, but the three fresh drilled will be snug.
Not sure if there is some form f machined register ring to lcate disc onto s130 hub, hub mount face, but one would be a good idea.

Thanks for the reply guys. I was hoping to try and keep things simple and as little machine work as possible. I had seen imacks post before but it doesn't seem to be finished, I might consider going this route if parts can't be found to fix the current calipers. The one on Hybridz looks like a lot of work and I would have to find a bunch of Z31 stuff to make it work. Dat2kman, I have seen plenty of S30 conversions and I don't think they would carry over to the S130 in the same way
Hello, the car brakes really well, it is finished, just need to do some testing
made adapter plates that Simon welding onto the hubs to fit the falcon caliper (these are used on alot of hot rods) due to the handbrake & rear brake combination
the rear discs are off a 350z , might go to vented later
All works well

Do you have anymore photos of your set up?
No, but can take some in the weekend.
