Still a few sets remaining - I found a few sets in the garage I was going to ship overseas but the buyer backed out. +1 for availability!

Actually, there is something wrong, but for the most part, it's insignificant when installation directions are followed closely. The studs are mounted to the main bracket portion using a set screw and an adhesive. It only takes ~40-50 ft-lbs to break the set screw and pull the stud from the bracket; thus, if you overtorque the brackets even the slightest amount, which happens to be very close to what Porsche specifies for those calipers anyway, the screws break and the bracket must be repaired. Now, under most driving circumstances, this will never happen as brake forces are along the planar axis of the caliper, it's only during installation this phenomenon may occur.

That being said, no, I don't have front brackets available currently though they have been designed and even a prototype set produced. I've contemplated making them, but only with a proper fastener solution such that the original torque spec of 45 ft-lbs can be applied to the mounting studs. In all actuality, I would make absolutely certain that it would withstand closer to 3x the torque spec before concern arises.

If you're interested in the rear brackets, feel free to send a PM my way.

I suppose these caliper brackets won't work with the PFC DD rear rotors? We might've had a conversation about this last year

I've not seen the PFC DD rears, but I'd have no problem giving them a shot.
I'm on the cusp of needing to make more brackets, but demand has slowed to a crawl so it's hard to justify as I may be sitting on them for quite some time.

The brake track is a lot smaller on the rear PFC DD rotors, to the tune of 5 - 10mm IRCC. It sounds like this took you a while to unload, so I say there is always the next FUN project

During my winter break, I may look into retrofit cruise control into my ZCP with the E39 wiper stalk Plus I got all the parts to do inspection II
