Does anyone know a machinist who can help with installing Shelby GT500 brakes on C4 Vette spindles?

i have a question.. and this is just my personal opinion.. . as anything can be done with enough money... and you are going to want to have an extra pair of spindles that the machine shop can mount to measure and test fit.. are you just wanting to use the ford calipers???  in my opinion.. brakes are brakes... other than style issues.  and that can be handled in some cases.. there are various sizes.. stopping power..  are you planning on doing all 4 wheels.. the reason i ask.. is that there is a little issue with brake bias.. where the fronts usually have 2/3rds or the braking force by size.. caliper piston sizes are hard to get changed from brand to brand..

if you post more info on what you are doing.. .. you might also want to post where on the planet you are..  as you want to probably work locally. if its an easy swap..
