WOW... nice adaptation. That would also make a good drift setup with the added mechanical handbrake extension

Did you have new brackets made up or did you add an additional one just for the mechanical caliper?

I made up a complete new bracket that mounts both Calipers. Much tidier

Any chance you might be selling these brackets or might make a CAD file available for us fellow Zers?

Once Ive got the handbrake cable sorted out, and I know its all good, then yes, I will be happy to do a group order. Individually (1 set at a time) arent cheap....like anything its cheaper the more you get done. So I guess it depends on interest. You are the 2nd Query I have had in a few days, so its looking good. Anyone else who might be keen, please express your interest so I can perhaps make some enquiries about bulk orders.

i'm down for one! I think its quite funny how, azc cbf engineering this. Because they assumed everyone would just convert to hydraulic rear disc brakes setup.

Yeah...Dave at AZC isn't interested at all about the H/Brake setup side of things - Have you read the FAQ on his website ?...makes for some funny reading

LOL i just had a read, alot of the questions are by kids i reckon. Woza did you buy the corner packages? Or did you buy the race kits and modified your own strut to accomodate? I wanted to know if thats a 240z or a 260z struts that were used.
[Aug 28, 2008 at 03:34 AM]
Yep, I bought the kits and did it all myself. Its a lot cheaper that way. I assume that if you did Buy the whole assembly, you would be given the option of 240Z or 260Z Struts. I guess you'd need to confirm that before ordering though. Personally, I see no point in paying all that extra just for cutting a strut tube and welding a sleeve on ! haha

I'm in as well, but just as long as we can get this done within a month or two, we don't want it turning into a JSK group buy again

Ill do my best....total bummer that this whole work thing gets in the way of the things that i would like to do haha. I also have a problem ....I have no wheels, so even when I do get the cable sorted, I cant go for a test drive, and Ill be very reluctant to produce any more untill I know they work well - The last thing I want is a lynch mob ! haha

Woza may be good to start a new thread in the brake section so other people can join in with their 2cents worth. Do you have any pics with the hand brake cable in position, then we can all get our engineering hats on and see if it's going to work ok.

Good Idea Charlie Boy - I have posted a thread in the Brake Forums ! At this stage no.....I dont have any pics yet of the cable in position. I still need to get the additional cable mounts laser cut, bent & welded. Ive got most of the hardware that Im going to use for the cable, but need the mounts done before I can proceed.
