I found the correct donor car in a scrap yard in Carlisle a while ago. It was a LWB vitara MK1, but it looked like it had been at the bottom of the sea for most of its life. I think it was a very early one. It was the only MK1 with vented discs from the others I saw there. MK2 mostly seem to have vented but are the wrong offset to work as far as i've seen.

Might be worth messaging Keith Phillips as i think he might have made some in the past?

I have also been looking at front brembo calipers from a renault megane 225, these look simpler to make a mount for but might be too much for the master cylinder to run.

I looked at these a while back but was unsure of the benefits. The OEM one has a front wheel view on the nearside which is quite tempting. Keep us updated on the performance. Chris

I got them from Cartist01 make sure to make the correct selection in the drop down.

They are without the front wheel facing mirror, but thought these would be a good stop gap until someone brings those out. Not been out much since fitting them but very happy with them so far.

Re Drivers assist mirror.
I see JimnyStyle have the drivers side in stock so I've ordered one from them. Chris

I didn't know they were selling them, wonder why they are not doing the LH side as well?

That's some nice work with the chrome wrap, looks like the factory did it.
