What car supplied the rotors, calipers and Ebrake? Did you fabricate the mount, or is it a kit?

Pat,PM me your e-mail address and I'll send you details. The rear brackets came from Creative Spridgets. The rotors and calipers came from a 1996 Nissan Sentra/200SX with 4 wheel disc brakes. The park brake is built in to the rear caliper. I was able to hook up the Morris park brake cable by modifying the Nissan cable anchor to accommodate the mount stud on the Morris cable.Here is a link to more picshttps://www.flickr.com/photos/133435255@N08/Creative Spridgets has a good site for the conversion on a Midget.http://www.creativespridgets.com/disc-brakes/

Thanks Charles. Sorry, a little? slow to respond, but I just got the car sorta drivable a couple weeks ago. The pics are great! I followed the link to the Creative Spridgets site as I figured since the wheel cylinders are shot anyway, this is the upgrade to do, then I saw the wheel parameters and can't do the conversion with my stock Sprite wheels... Argh!

Pat,The 9" rear disc will fit most 13" sprite wheels. IIRC there is an issue with the real early sprite wheels. The fronts that I did are 9.75". I have not tried them with any 13" wheels. Gerard @ Gerards garage is looking into the 13" wheel fitment for the front. He has the front brackets in stock. You might want to drop him a note.
