Thats the rear brake calaper and discs fitted. No special flexes or brackets required, standard flexes (unless you want to upgrade) and simply switch over the hand brake cable cams and cable guide bracket from the 2k brake calliper and assemble onto the R32 calliper. I took a few pics to help anyone else doing the same mod in future. Will at it as a how to on my build thread as soon as I get a minute.
Heres a few pics of the install.

Glad you got it sorted. Strange mine needed custom length flex lines though.

Yes Dan I wondered about that to. I ordered HEL standard 2k rears with carbon outer sheath to match the front, but once you change the cable locating brackets from R32 calliper to the original 2K bracket the flexible lines go to the exact same position as standard. I took as many pics as I could to help any one else doing the same mod in future, I will post up a how-to and it will hopefully all make sense. Thanks again for your help Dan.
