100% they won't fit. The standard 1.6 TF discs (240mm IIRC) and callipers are the biggest OEMs that'll fit with that setup.

I'm now running drilled/grooved MGF disc's from on of the ebay shops and Mintex 1144 pads with standard yellow tag master cylinder and 1/2 rear slaves, like a couple of the other Watsons builds on here. They do need a little more pressure when first off the drive or out the garage but after that their fine and if needed when you stand on the pedal you can just about lick the screen!

You are probably going to end up with the rear brakes being overkill. Add an adjustable brake bias in the pipe to rear as it will want to spin you around with brakes on rear being so powerful.

Cheers buddy, appreciate that!! I was wondering about bias, and which would have the most stopping power if you know what I mean? Thanks
