Plus sizing rotors
I know that AEM and PowerSlot have kits that use the factory calipers with relocation brackets to use larger rotors. I was thinking, how hard would it be to create my own mounting brackets? I could use a strong piece of aluminum or steel or something to make my own brackets. I was wondering if anyone has a good picture of the brackets used in either of these kits. Has anyone tried this? I figure doing this will prevent having to spend several hundred dollars. I know I would need to buy larger rotors that match the ones used in these kits.

I would say taking the chance with your brakes for a few hundred $ isn't worth it... just spend the money and be safe!!!

wouldn't try it unless you have experience in fabricating this type of thing. and you'd need a really thick peice like 1/2 in. you'd need to figure out measurements and how much further out the caliper needs to be based on current rotor size and new rotor size. You probably also want to have a plasma cutter. Cutting out brackets of 1/2 steel with a hacksaw would probably take an eternity. and I wouldn't try to build one off of a picture, if you can build a functioning bracket to mount your calipers for your rotors you won't need a picture. but like HJC said it's risky business messing with your breaks like that.

Well what I was thinking is that if I could find someone who has the brackets already, they could provide me with some nice pictures, measurements, etc. Then, I know people who work with metal for a living that could put me together something. I realize it's risky, but if you look at the AEM and Power Slot kit, there isn't anything to the adaptor.

You can see the adaptors in these two pictures, and they almost look plastic. This is the AEM kit, and the pictures are from the Installs section.
