Rear disc conversion - drawings/fabrication help

I'm looking to do a Punto GT rear disc conversion on my Sei. However I don't have a rear calliper mount from which to get the mounts made up. If anyone has a drawing for one to be made up or even better knows someone who has made them up in the past I'd be grateful for any information passed on.

A&R Jordan makes them, ask him for a set, saves time and energy and they are high quality products as there are no mounts on the GT originally, the callipers mounted to the suspension, these are complete fabrications built to suit this conversion.

no, but if you wanted to make a set you could use that drawing - a cento drum plate and caliper mount from a punto GT. that is what i sent to Jordan who made my mounts for me.

He also says we get i get a slight discount if i get two sets made up Interested POWL?

My "GT" brakes get fitted on the fronts on the weekend as long as the pads/discs arrive in time...the rears are a wip, but if i get the mounts, i have no excuse then.

PM if interested

Re: Rear disc conversion - drawings/fabrication help

LOL, someone PM Jordan, maybe we can start a group buy sticky?? See who's interested? I'm sure as with anything, costs come down as quantity goes up.

For anyone interested we are talking the 60-70 mark, CNC'd and painted....but for a true price you need to speak to the man

Re: Rear disc conversion - drawings/fabrication help

Well I'm interested in 2 sets, so that's a total of 5 sets so far.

I PMed Jordan and have yet to get a response , hence me wanting to make my own.

Re: Rear disc conversion - drawings/fabrication help

Well both Red & Yellow has their MOTs in 3 months. Problem is red isn't even close to passing on the rear brakes (reqs drums, shoes & handbrake activation leavers, not to mention one of mount plates is rotten) so sorting out the rear brakes is high on my list of things needed urgently.

One thing to add, it has been mentioned to me that the mounts made for arc prevented bleeding of the rear calipers properly as the bleed nipple isn't the highest point of the caliper. Now for StoneNewt's rear conversion they mounted the calipers at -60 degrees not -90 (as on arc's mounting plates) this made sure that the bleed nipple the is highest point.
