Having decided to go back to the g60 type brakes i  thought i would attempt something slightly different.     The g60 calipers are now pretty old and prices are quite steep.    Having run a clio 172 for the past 7 years i knew they run a 280mm front brake with lucas 54 calipers which are very similiar to the g60 calipers,   Unfortunately i gave away my accumulated spares when i recently sold the clio so a look on ebay got me a pair of 182/172 calipers/carriers for the princely sum of 40 delivered, these also have the advantage of being rather newer. So my plan (may not work) is to make an adaptor to fit these to the mk1 golf hub.      I dont have access to a machine shop just hand tools so nothing too intricate.  I just happen to have a piece of alloy which i will use (easy to work with) and if successfull will then buy some steel to make the final piece with, for strength obviously.

So i have made the trial alloy bracket, the final steel one will be shaped, not left as a rectangle. Bolting it all together it all seems to be in the right place..That is a 280mm g60 disc..
