Disc rotor machining

The rotor I'm proposing for my conversion is neither the correct PCD or available as a blank :err:
Can I legally re-drill the PCD to suit and if so what needs to be done (engineers certificate etc)? The supplied PCD is a 4 stud and I will be re-drilling to also suit a 4 stud.

Many thanks.

Paul

Re: Disc rotor machining

DBA should be able to supply a disc that has not been drilled.

Re: Disc rotor machining

Have tried EBC and DBA with no luck as they only supply a limited batch of rotors as blanks and are intended for race use only.....

Re: Disc rotor machining

You could always say they are for race use, then get them drilled be a reputable Engineering shop.

Re: Disc rotor machining

I can't even do that because the ones I need aren't available at all as blanks - BUGGER!

Will need to get on the engineer's good side and see what he says about re-drilling.

Cheers ppl.
