Are you adapting a stock frame, or building from scratch? Is the BRA frame square tube?

Good fun, this fabrication!

Hi Roger,

It's a very old BRA square tube frame I'm using. I just wanted to get a piece of the old frame left :-). The rear (from a Griffith 500) is nearly finshed except for the tubes under the boot section. Front will take another few months because of very limited time. To make the whole frame stiff it will get a welded tunnel frame connected to the front and rear, later covered with aluminium.
Cheers
Migge

If you want to use Wilwood Dynalite calipers on Jaguar hub carriers you have to do some work on the aluminium brackets. For MGB they are available :-(

Standard bracket with two holes for the caliper
