I just ordered my kit from the guy who made J10Mikes. Real nice fella called me back about an hour after I sent an email requesting info. Put it on plastic and hope to see it this weekend.
It is a full kit minus the Ebrake cables. He has a contact for getting them made as well. Appearantly there is a couple of different variations on the J20 out there and they need to be done per vehicle to assure correct fit.

If mike doesn't send you the info I will send you his name and contact when I get home from work in the morning.

Hmmmm, my rear 12" drums are getting pretty used up. What calipers does this setup use? Those look like a common pin-type Delco. 5 on 5 1/2 rotors? Anybody running it?

Thanks Elliot. It's hard to believe the D60 was that clean.
The calipers are are for a 77 Eldorado. But, if you don't need a parking brake, standard FSJ or Chevy truck front calipers fit the brackets.
I have been very satisfied with the results since doing the conversion.

Tom, I never did look for a cable for the parking brake. If you come up with a company name, please forward that to me via PM or email.

I did up a J20 rear with ford brackets and spaced them out before carefully tacking and welding them in. I used common chevy calipers instead of el dorado as the el dorado calipers need constant adjustment.

Yes, everything (brackets, bracket bolts, rotors, calipers, pads, caliper bolts, spacers, flexlines, and hub seals) I needed came in the kit with the exception of the new brake hardline that is fastened to the axle. The hard line can be found at any auto parts store for under 5 bucks. A tubing flare tool would also be useful.

Mike,

Do you have contact info for the guy who made your kits? I searched the site a little, but did not find it easily.
