OK, so I think i have almost everything I need now to convert to front disc brakes on my 68. I have a pair of C8OEA Spindles, booster, pedal, etc....On the "donor" spindles, there are two different styles of backing plate. One is basically flat, the other one has much wider spacing and 'aggressive' looking cooling capacity. Is one just bent up a bit more than the other, or is this a design feature?
P.S., I don't have the bolts that actually hold the calipers to the spindles, has anybody got an extra set, or should I go ahead and post a 'parts wanted' ad?

Some of the better rebuild kits have those bolts in them. I think there were several backing plate styles. It should not hurt the braking but will look odd to use them.

1968 disc brakes had non-vented shields. 1969 and thereafter they had the slits for air venting.
