Think it'll work?

Ok so I have some backyard/driveway shenanigans going on..



Think I could somehow fabricate some way to use the brakes (calipers + rotors) on my Mustang?
With no power brakes though..

Is it as simple as I think it is? I'm thinking just fabbing up a bracket to hold the caliper.
But right now as I was typing this I just realized I would need a disc hub since I have 4 wheel drums. Dammit.

I might be able to use the spindles/hubs from a disc conversion kit for the mustang and just fab a bracket up for the calipers. But these brakes are stupid big.
My front rotors are like the size of my rims on the fofo. The rear ones are a bit bigger than the front rotors on the fofo

Holy Smokies!

that is a pile of car parts..

Given the design difference of the suspension systems of those 2 cars, I think you would have a easier time getting the bmw motor to work in the stang before the breaks..


Good luck thou.

I'll have the parts lying around in the shed. Figure it out then.
I want this BMW out of the way by the time my new car comes. It's blocking my canopy and it's acorn season again
