    Hello
    A few years back a member had made some adapter for brakes & provided a list of
    parts you could pick up from any auto parts store. Any way to get in touch with that
    member? He can e-mail me directly at MikelD1974@gmail.com

    Thank-You
    Mike

    https://vintage-vans.forumotion.com/u266 m1dadio makes/sells brackets and provides a list of parts when you buy them. I bought his brackets and sourced the parts. Haven't installed them yet but the brackets look great and there have been more than a few who installed his solution and said they worked great. Uses rear discs from a 80 Firebird and Metric body front calipers

    Any idea how to get a hold of him? He hasn't been on in over a year.

    Here I am (finally). Sorry I haven’t logged in for some time. M1D disc brake brackets are available aIong with an optional vacuum operated power booster. I can be reached at vintagechevyvanparts@gmail.com
    The YouTube channel is called Van Lab but I guess I can also answer to the Sacramento (VCV) Chop Shop? (Good one AzDon) ;>)
