Hello
I am interested in putting discs on my 65 comet. Are there kits available? If I go the junkyard route, which cars should I steal parts from? Does anyone have a write-up on this conversion on the internet? Thanks a lot.

Here is an excellent link:

http://www.stuart.iit.edu/students/2112/restoration/diskbrakes.htm

It uses 75-80 Granada disc brakes, which are plentiful (they were standard on all Granadas). Maverick & Mustang discs should work with the same procedure.
