Then I bought some 15x7 wheels.
Never really loved them and finally I sold them to some Lancia guy.

I started with the rear calipers .
I had to modify mounting holes to fit them , since it is a 5mm difference.

Image

Image

Caliper fits right on

Image

Image

Back guard painted and installed

Image

Rotor took its place

Image

High temp header paint

Image

Image

And to compare old and new rotors

Front was harder , a lot harder.
It took me about 6-7 hours to fabricate one adapter plate out of 10mm steel.
I don't have any fancy machinery , so everything was done by simple hand held tools.
The second one was a little easier , I just copied the first one. :D

One of the biggest problems was to find the rims what clear the calipers and look good
I tried a lot
Most of them don't clear the calipers or stick out too much
The first set barely cleared the front and it looked too heavy

Image

The second one I like a lot , but they come in +10 offset only and they stick out about an inch

Image

The third ones is the winner so far , maybe I'll paint them gold sometime

Image

Image

Picked up calipers from powder coating
Everything is back together except for the brake hoses

I think the brake conversion part of this thread should be in tech.

By the way, what caliper mounting bracket did you have to make for the rear calipers?

No brackets for the rear , I just had to make mounting holes slightly bigger (oval) .
