But I did get enough time to rough-cut the Brembo adapter plates. You can see them to the left in all of their rough-cut glory!
Once all of this is ground to final shape, painted, and fit up to the rear suspension knuckle, the Wilwood parking brake will bolt up at the "tail," and the big ol' Brembo caliper will bolt to the "eyes." Relative to the target mass of the car (818 kg), this should provide a whole bunch of braking.
In the front, I'll be using exactly the same Brembo calipers and the same rotors (from a WRX STi) - but there's an existing solution for that, using a bracket that Subaru people use to add big brakes to their WRXes.
