Ive got some preliminary brackets designed for the rear calipers (this is driver side modeled, but the bracket will work on either side):

Ive got a mockup of my front disc brake adapter bracket. I think it came out pretty good on the first try. Time to find a machine shop that can make me some brackets that wont break the bank.

Hi yitzac1990,

just want to say thanks for taking the time to keep us all in the loop with your build thread - don't have a clue where you find the time to make the progress you have so quickly but it's a great read and both informative and inspiring too - you're making it look all too easy !

Looking forward to the next installment, please keep it coming...

Cheers,
D

when I am not at my job, or with my son, i basically devote all that other time to the Patrol haha

i also enjoy working on vehicles, especially new projects, so even when I say this will be a "slow project", i usually am too excited to take my time

Thank you!

Well done. Once you get everything the way you want it please share a complete list of which machine shop has your specs and can repeat your success.

RiverPatrol - I presume the 69 parts shown herein will fit on all the year models in the 60s. If not please offer us guidance on which years his wonderful upgrade will work on.

I have all of the specs for the brakes because I designed all the parts myself. I will happily share everything. I already made a separate thread for the rear brake disc swap, and will do the same for the fronts.
