Thanks mate the brakes took me a while to fabricate but it was worth it I think.
they just about fitted on with my 19s they are 360mm discs and calipers from the range rover sport and are oversized 4 pots I was well pleased they fitted on lol

ouch!!!! that's stunning. To be honest I don't get that excited when i see these engine swaps, but will speak out when I see a good 'un; which that certainly is!!  :y

Mind if I just inquire - about the RR Brakes - isn't there a difference in the PCD? If it's an easy conversion I can image several chaps on here (me included) being interested in a beefy brake upgrade  ;)

Hi there thanks again for the compliments I am glad its finished thow it was hard work and not been able to drive it was the worst of all lol.
The brake conversion wasn't to bad to do it just mopped up the hrs making the brackets.
The vauxhall brake line is a direct fit into the calipers. I had the discs cnc machined to 5x110 and got a friend to make me some steel centre rings for the discs to locate onto so they sat perfectly centred onto my hubs

360mm Discs 70 range rover specialist
Calipers 260 ebay
Cnc 60
Centre hub rings 20
Steel and bolts 15

All together 425
And I got quoted 1.400 for a aftermarket direct bolt on kit so I saved a fair bit
On that 😁 lol
