    Can anyone tell me what is involved? As far as I can tell from the pictures on beater74's the outerpiece that has the lugs is removed then welded on the backside of the inner most plate. Any specs?

    I had the outer flange machined off, the hub body turned down so a wheel would fit over and had the threaded holes bored out to fit the new lug studs. The lugs are different between the SRW and the DRW. Also had to increase the size of the holes in the rotor for the lugs to pass through.

    Someone here has had this done and they added a larger diameter flange over the inner flange(star shaped) which is a good idea. The mounting surface of my wheel is almost larger than that inner flange, so it doesn't quite fit right. A 1/2" larger diameter would do it.

    Hope this helps, makes sense. Any other questions, just let me know.
