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.
