cool mate what exactly have you got the whole convertion?
You'll need the hub, backplate, calliper, pad carrier, sport/gsi handbrake cable, the cable brackets and obviously the disks and pads.

aye i know cheers mate all i really need to know is what modle car i can rob at the scrappy:laugh: . mk? year? cavalier, astra, vectra etc
When I replaced my rear beam due to someone hitting my car and bending my old beam, I replaced it with the rear beam with discs from a 1.8 sport. It might be easier to replace the whole beam as it is 4 bolts and then the brake pipes to sort out. You will need, the hubs, discs, calipers and carriers as well as the handbrake cable if you can get it and probably the pips and handbrake cable clips. That is if you where to get the bits seperatly.
