MG TD TF 1500 - Disk brakes conversion

Just came across this on ebay

http://www.ebay.de/itm/MGTD-TF-DISC-BRAKE-CONVERSION-KIT-/231022616941?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item35ca05616d

Anyone seen it before or used it ?
I would not do it, because Im perfectly happy with my drum brakes, but for those who do a lot of hills it might be useful
(Sorry if it was discussed before and I missed it...)

I did the same thing for less than $100- it's called a junk MGB; even sold the seats for more than the car cost. We wanted the B's wire wheel adapters and rear end for the gearing, while the discs were a welcome bonus. Converted a "New Old Stock" Chevette master cylinder for dual circuit braking and plumbed in a proportioning valve, too. All works great.

Did mine with MGA brakes and same old MC as came with the car. I have wire wheels on my car. I love the disc brakes, they work fine and stop the car nicely.
