thin caliper

Hello
I am putting together a set up on the front of my street/strip car. I need to find a caliper that is thin on the outside, since my rotor is close to my rim
I am making a custom inner hub, so I can bring the rim in away from the fender, so I am using a rotor off a Lumina which has a shallow hat. I don't have room for the Lumina caliper and the Weld Wheel rim
Does anyone know of something that may help me out for dimensional purposes? I can machine things a bit if I have to, but if something is readily available it will make it much easier
thanks
Tom

Check out Speedway's website. Hurst/Airheart - now part of the mr gasket empire used to make thin rotors and calipers for spindle mounts in the 70/80s.
G'day Tom, bad bushfires here, check out the CFA website.

May or Maybe not

Dunno if this helps or not:http://www.ssapubl.com/index.cfm?do=...&productid=193 this is a blueprint for making your own calipers..If all else fails this may be the way to go..

Thanks Ian and OMT. I ordered the blueprints from Steve Smith and I have contacted a manufactrer for more info on their product
If I cannot buy ones that will fit, then maybe I will make my own
