    Did you have to relocate the brake line that runs inside the frame rail and behind the stock mc to mount the bracket?? I'm currently in the process of installing the KW kit and it looks a bit wonky. Not sure if I have to replace and reroute the hard lines.

    Edit - I found the contact info in the vendor section...think it might be worth contacting them...
    RandPCustom4x4@outlook.com
    503-557-8911 cell 503-504-7011

    Maybe NickMil can help us out with that...as he is still in contact with Richard and his new business? The R&P kit also got high reviews on the Wagon forum and I am interested to upgrade the wagon as well.

    After viewing the linked thread above, I have to say that Howard's conversion bracket looks like the best approach I've seen to date.

    R&P Customs has been renamed to R&P Early Jeep Parts when Richard’s partner Steve passed away due to cancer. Richard is one of the founders of the original R&P 4WD Parts Inc.
    he has a bunch of the brackets and kits in stock for flatty’s, CJ’s, Wagons and Pickups. At least he did a couple weeks ago when I was up at his shop dropping stuff off. Normally we have lunch once a week but the last month have been a zoo for both of us.
    He is hunting right now for about another week or so. Please be patient. The phone number is the same, 503-557-8911 and he is on the West Coast (PST) so keep that in mind. He is a one man shop now so he gets to e-mails etc. as fast as he can. Other folks have copied his design but he is the original. I know, peripherally I was involved in the design and prototype process. Along with many of the disc brake conversions, transmission and transfer case conversions, steering conversions, and other things. His products are well thought out, well tested, and overall intuitive to install and use. For firsthand experience I installed his dual mc conversion on my ‘59-5 when the single reservoir finally started leaking. The bracket is also the template to drill 3 holes iirc in the frame. Reconfrigure the brake lines to thread into the mc and good to go. His kit includes whichever residual pressure valves needed. Just tell him if running disc or drum. You can mount the reservoir’s to the mc or extend them up with the supplied adapters and mount them to the fender or firewall.
    Again, Richard’s are the original and one of the best thought out the market imho.

    Howards design does look strong and elegant, and not overly complex. You should market them.That MC is a Wilwood 260-7563 tandem?

    Yes it is.

    Somewhere's around here iI have a dimensioned drawing of the mount, if it ever rises to the top of the pile I'll post it up.
