    my lathe doesn't have the swing to mount the rotor, but I can bore out the spacers easy enough. Haven't run stock rotors in a long time though, and my two Fox cars that do use those rotors run stock wheels.

    Nice! Machining things is fun. What wheels you planning to run?

    Problem with boring the ID of the hubcentric part of the spacer is that the wall would end up being about .0075" thick by the time it would fit over the rotor stub. I found some cheap 16" LSC turbines in pretty good shape that were just spray bombed black. my buddy is blasting and powder coating them (it's his actual job, he works for a powder coating company)

    Couldn't you just get the spacers made that fit?

    Still, that hubcentric wall would only be .0075" thick. The pass through diameter on the spacer is 2.545" Stub on the rotor is 2.760" Hub mounting diameter is 2.780" (70.6mm)

    Looks good. Nice option for LSC wheels that the finish is getting a little ratty on.
