rx7 brake upgrade

hello to all, i am planning on converting my brakes to the 4 piston rx7 calipers, and can have the adapter plates made for me, i was just wondering if there was any one else out there who would like to do this swap? i ask because the more adapters i get made the cheaper it comes out to per set, so if any one is interested, just let me know and ill get back to you guys with a price.
thanks
andrij

Depending on the price I may be interested. Just resealed my stock calipers but I've had rx7's on my mind for when my motor swap happens...

cool well the current price for one set will cost me 75$ only because the guy i know will have to punch the drawing into the computer, but after he does that the price will get cheaper with every extra set added, so then, i can divide the full cost by the full amount of brackets and everyone wins

For me it'd have to be considerably less than 75 bucks. Laziness would motivate me to pay maybe 20 bucks a bracket, but other than that I'd machine it myself. Any pics of what the finished product would look like btw?

currently no pics, but the guy that will be making the brackets runs a legitimate machining shop so i would assume that they will turn out fairly good. here are the drawing i sent him.

Hey man $75 is a lot if your not in a hurry i can probably get the guys in the machine shop at school to make those up for you and all it would you cost is material. As long as that link you posted has all the right measurements then i can print that out for them and they can make them up. PM me if you want me to run it by the guys.

I'd be down if you can get that deal going. I checked around and those measurements seem to be pretty standard for all the rx7 upgrades I've seen.
