52 chevy coupe Disc Brakes

Anybody have any info on doing a swap for the front? Is there anything compatible? I'm sure fabricating a bracket or two will be involved, but I want to know who's done it already.

My first thought was to replace the entire frame with an s10...decided against it. Then thought about a CE MII IFS set up...but that's too expensive and requires cutting the inner fender walls....so now I'm going to rebuild the stock front and replace the motor,tranny and stock drums up front with discs. I just don't know if I should get a kit or steal some from another car/truck. Any help or advice is useful and appreciated.
