Gary found parts pg 17 disc brake conversion are they worth it a bit of fabrication but maybe a week spare time or weekend once parts gathered. Jeff

Default Hawkrod brakes

Maybe this will help. Here is the thread where Hawkrod did his conversion. In this thread you will find the link to his pictures, which is still up. I just looked at all 33 pix. In that link, if you click on his name, Tom Cherry Hawkrod, you will find where you can email him. As noted, it has been some time since he has been on the Forum, so I do not know if that is still a good email address or not. But you might get lucky.

Far right hand side first drag over and click over until you come to 17 after page back from this post blue arrow pointing left top of your search engine google yahoo what ever hope this helps. Basiclly 65/66 spindles discs calipers modified shock tower brace rears much more involved MKVII. Lincoln lax type totally custom 4wheel disc brakes for a bullet (also heard referred to as torpedo birds) good luck. Jeff
