I've heard that it's 84-85 Maximas & that the center hole for the hub has to be opened up to fit. I don't know how parking brake cable fits w/this combo.

I don't know for sure 'cause i made my own...pleasures of access to plasma cutters & TIG welders...used 4130N steel & powder coated.

You will have to bend new brake lines for between the flex hose and the caliper.

What calipers and rotors did you use? The ones from a 280zx? What year is your car? How much time did it take to make your brackets and how much did it cost? Hint Hint

>Seems like a sensible conversion.
But are there any other possible brake parts fitting, since in my country (Sweden) Neither the Maxima nor Stanzas were sold in 1984-85.
If parts should be avilable though. How about brackets and mountings? Does it fit bolt on, be happy or is bodily modifications necessary?

What car did you salvage the mouting brackets off of to get the rear disks to mount on (a 280Z).. I read about a kit that does it but they charge $150 for the bracket. If you know of a car that I can pull it off of please let me know.

Thanks
