Lexus SC rear calipers on the ST165

Been lagging on the rear brakes and since pick your part had a 50% off sale during New Years, I picked up some SC400 rear calipers. But as I’m usually an idiot, I was supposed to get SC300 calipers. SC400’s have a 307mm rear rotor, while the SC300’s have a 290mm which is the same as the Legacy GT rear rotors I bought and fitted. Oh well, they still have the same bolt pattern. I think this is the magic combo though. Bolt holes line up and the offset is almost perfect. A small amount of milling/grinding will need to be done to the caliper mounting face and the upright will need to be drilled to the larger SC brake caliper bolt.
