Retrofitting AU11 standard brakes onto AU1

Anyone know if this is do-able?
If so, anyone want to buy a one-week old set of AU11 calipers, pads and rotors?
I went the premium brakes option y'see...

I think you need the AUII spindals as the "two pots" are mounted on the front of the disc and also had a bigger brake booster.
The dash pannel was modified to fit the new booster so that cant be used but the master cylinder may fit on the old booster but Im not sure if it has a larger capacity and is worth the effort (I may try to fit one soon).
The AU1 had them mounted on the back of the disc between the tie rod attatchment point and the spindal upright.
Im not sure if changing the spindals will upset the front end geometry as the spindals were a new casting but I do know that you will need the 16 inch wheels to go over the two pots.
Good Luck
