    Could you describe this 'plate'?

    Rotors are hard to find, you more or less just have to luck onto them.

    As an alternative, you can fit the complete early 504 disc, caliper and caliper mount to the 404 by redrilling two holes in the hub of the disc.

    Smaller discs, but plentiful.

    I got some machined, but ended up costing about $600 for two. The 504 discs sound like the way to go. I think I got a pair of them a couple of years ago for under $250. I wonder if the drums at the back can be changed for 504 discs. Someone's bound to know...?

    I wouldn't bother... the handbrake problem would be enough to turn me off that. And machining etc would be a nightmare, especially the caliper mount.

    Good point Ray, hadn't thought of that. My 504 seems ok at the moment. Just do what they suggest in the manual - pump the brakes a few times hard with the handbrake off and the car running and it seems to come good. Still, I was thinking performance-wise, not day-to-day driving, but my dash-mounted 404 handbrake doesn't do anything; a damn sight worse than the 504 one.

    I don't think I've ever had a problem with a 404 handbrake...

    By the way, there is a thread somewhere about getting rotors made for both 404 and 504... nothing like the cost you mention.

    If anyone has a stuffed rotor they can send me, i can get a quote on getting them replicated..
    A competetive quote of course.
    I know a guy that manufactures disc rotors...
    However i will need one side (Or Both), so i can get them copied..For the dimensions ect. ect.

    There probably is. Unfortunately for me I got the discs before I found Aussiefrogs.

    How would a nice detailed drawing go?

    Perfect, if it has dimensions, i'm sure i can get them made.
    They aren't going to be $50ea, but they won't be $500 either...
    can you post the drawing?, email them??

    I am still making enquiries,
    I have to order 20 x Pairs of discs.
    They won't be too expensive, it would be good if some 404 owners who plan on keeping thier cars would place an order with me for spare sets, so that i don't have to fork out 1000's of bucks, for little or no return...
    any interest if i can get hold of them??

    They shouldn't be any more than $250 a set

    What was the original thickness by the way, and where did you find out? A couple of millimetres were skimmed off the caliper to fit mine, but fatter discs wink

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    My mate couldn't help me, with manu****uring custon discs, so i had to look elsewhere.

    The company i am talking to have made 404 rotors before, i will find out the thickness for you..

    Thing is here that the same pattern can be used to make both 404 and 504 discs, saving a lot of setup costs.

    Machining would be nearly identical too... and I guess they could come out with 6 holes drilled in all of them so that the drillings would all be the same.

    If you want I'll draw it up tomorrow. Let me know... but I don't think anything over about $80 a disc is reasonable...

    Like I said before, there is another thread, DBA could make them at a fair price.

    That drawing would be great ray..
    $80 a disc??
    you pay more for 205 disc's let alone a small run production for 404 discs...
    505/4 discs are about $50 ea, but setup costs would at least double the price of the discs..
    anyway, i want some interested people to put in orders when i get prices, cause i will not sit on $4000 of stock that takes years to move..
    I hope they are not over the top in price...
    I will know in about a week i reckon..

    That's my point about the similarity between the 404 and 504 discs... pattern making would be shared between them. Also some of the programming for the turning.
