Making Caliper Adapters

Hi, all. Im planning on making caliper adapters for my race car. I wanted to know if there were any set procedures for tackling such a project, or is it simply done using the good ole trial and error method. Any ideas, formulas, etc would be greatly appreciated.

I'd say mount the rotor and position the caliper on it then take measurements of the relative positions of the mounting faces of the caliper relative to the upright.

Thanks, Black. I had a feeling I'd have to resort to trial and error for this project. I'll end up starting with finding a suitable floating rotor and measure from there. The adapter will be made out of T6061 block as that's what the heavy hitters use. Any other thoughts are appreciated.
