Gone balls deep now have aching nuts....

hi guys, so in a nut shell iv gone and done a r35 to 33 brake conversation,

using the supertec mount kit with rear bells,

alcon disc... i know i know! but the calipers came with near new rears so went that way!

because my calipers came from a late model, running 390s, i had to have the lugs professionally taken down by 5 mm, job done!

had them fitted, happy days! not quite, i used the alcon front bell from the 390 set up, seamed to take the 380 rotors fine, but have now discovered the over all diameter is 4-7mm larger then a 380 bell, so now the back plate of the pad will foul on the bell once some meat has been used...

i have made many calls, searched on line, and before any recommends them Litchfields are a no go!

so i have two options, go a different brand, or ask if anyone happens to have or know if anyone has a pair of pre 2008 380 front bells for alcons, or im told the brembo bell will also carry a alcon?

any help much appreciated, photos of build to follow
