Alan, I also thought about going from the caliper and looping it around the back of the damper (in between the subframe) and then attaching it near the top of the original mounting postion. This way you haven't got to up from the caliper then down & under the bottom of the subframe. If your way works i might just stick to that.

It makes sense now, my calipers are on the right way up. With your set up the caliper brake hose connection is at the bottom so the hose has less distance to travel to the subframe and only has to do a 'u' shape loop. My way I will need longer hoses (I cut the originals off as well).
Thanks for your help.

PS any body want the original drum set up and driveshafts?

I did try to make some short adapters but didn't like the way they looked so I went the route of having braided hoses made by the same guy you mentioned in your post.  I had a 90 degree end put on the calliper end of the hose to reduce the S share to a sort or 5 shape without the line on the top of it if that makes sense...

Aye! I have a fair bit to do aswell! The guy on the rallydesign may have a point about 13" wheels being slightly too small because the golf mk4 calipers have them fins on whereas the early steel/iron ones didn't because alloy is slightly weaker and conducts away more heat. But if you're moving the calipers in on the hubs, this may not be a problem, especially if the old ones fit under 12" steel wheels! Plus the mini hubs are a lot smaller than the cars with intended use.

Thanks for being so snap happy when doing your conversion alan, it is really helpful  :) !!

It wasn't the guy that stated they wouldn't fit 13's Max, it states it in the Rally Design Catalogue. If you look at Alan's calipers they look roughly the same size, i think the fins sort of grove into the caliper, rather than stick out. Im sure we will be fine Max. :D

Oh and don't forget, the race is still on!!!!! ;D
