I figured the following issue is important enough to warrant posting on both the Home Page & here.

To WDB2 Owners & possibly WDB1 Owners

Front Brake Caliper Mounting Brackets: If you still have the original brackets on your car, take a good look at them. On the two cars we have, both brackets had cracks running near the caliper mounting holes. This probably doesn't apply to WDB3s or WDB4s since they use a different upright, but check your brackets as a matter of course. If you are interested, I have drawings for a replacement bracket (shown in the next set of photos)  that is stronger & more aesthetically pleasing, however I do not sell the brackets. The problem can be seen in the following photos:
