i was thinking of using the rear discs off my 94 9C1 caprice. they have the drum type parking brake, and single piston PBR calipers.the bolt pattern on the rotor is wrong, but it looks like a rear off a 90's vette is the same, with the right bolt gm's parts interchangeability.

I emailed the Webmaster, he sent me the template of the caliper bracket, I plan on making it out of plywood first and mocking togehter a set-up.. using trans am rotors and caddy calipers. I think.
