    I wouldn't say that I've 'stuck' some on but yes I've fitted them. What do you need to know?
    If it's got tits or tyres, its gonna be trouble

    bin the drums etc, cut out the piece of backplate thats bolts to axle ends where the 4 bolts are, slip on a pair of Fiesta discs, then make up caliper brackets, quite an easy job to do actually.


    heres a 105e with Mercedes 190e discs, and half shafts converted to 5 stud I did a few years ago, same principle though.

    That was only to check that it worked Steve, as the new Scorpio/Cossy calipers are a pain to bleed from new.

    common mod for these are mk3 escort /orion front discs with seirra/granada rear calipers which will still allow 13 inch rims fitted, mount brackets on ebay, just on with this mod on my magnum axle.

    that sorts that then, must admit iv never had that much trouble bleeding them, iv fitted granada calipers with rover disc's on a 105 axle for the consul capri, with the ford discs you need to turn the face down on the shaft which didn't leave much meat by the studs,
