    You can get from either UK or Aus, but works out expensive.

    So I DIY’d.

    Calipers are Renault megane/scenic
    Brake lines custom made
    Disks are JIMNY front disk
    Backing plate cut for a spacer
    Bearing retainer from SJ is used to hold bearing in place
    Brackets are custom made

    Took me about 2 days including all the running around.

    AFAIK the Jimny's parking brake is in the rear drums. Obviously with the disc conversion you lost your parking brake. How did you overcome that?

    Correct. But the rear calipers are hand brake activated as well. So I still have a very functional handbrake

    Ok, so the Scenic calipers are rears with handbreak levers. Great!

    Rivar..... What did you use for a proportioning valve once you did the conversion?

    Nothing. Not necessary. I made a few adjustments on the brake pedal but otherwise not needed.

    Brakes like a champ and fronts lock up before the rears. Tested on the road and at road worthy center.

    Depends on how DIY pro you are.

    Cost me a few pennies

    Disk - R600
    Pads - R350
    Metal - R100
    Laser cutting - R300
    Odds and ends - R150
    Bearing retainers - R100

    And plenty of time.
