I just finished going through every post in the search for 'G60 Brakes' in the Mk1 forum. NOTHING. ANYBODY?!?!?
I got a set of adapters to put G60 front brakes on my Mk1, but they didn't come with instructions. I"m sure I can figure it out, but I wanted to SEE something to make sure I don't make a stupid mistake on my brakes.
Does anyone have pictures of the adapters/spacers installed? Or a doc/pdf file of the instructions.
Yes, I called the supplier, no instructions are available
Spacers go between the adapter and the brake carrier to properly align the caliper to the rotor. They're a pain to get in place, I put a dab of super glue on mine to hold them while I positioned everything.
Also use loctite on all those bolts, I used red. I have had my bolts back out twice and trashed a wheel. The second time it happened with blue loctite. With the red no issues, but I check them often anyways.

Thanks for that info.
I take it the adapters go on the back side of the ears of the spindle/knuckle? Meaning if I'm sitting on the ground looking at the spindle, I place the adapter on the BACK side of the original caliper mounting tabs.
Hey those look like I've got. I put the part together on the car yesterday, took a bunch of pictures and sent them to Jman to see if I got it right. I didn't. So when I swap them around, I'll be writing up the whole thing with super detailed pictures and step-by-step everything. Don't want put anyone else through the trouble, but then again, perhaps I'm the only idiot that can't figure it out on my own.
To update this... I got it figured out and installed. I have posted a 'thread' with install pictures here:
