    AU falcon rear calipers have a mechanical hand brake mech inside the caliper. If you where to put a breather in the fluid inlet port to keep out the crude they would work with just cable actuation.

    Disc thickness varied across the series from 13ish mm to 22mm

    330mm x 15mm rotor, I think 15.6mm thick rotor won't be a problem. The handbrake is cable actuated.

    The AU coon ones will obviously be cheaper though...

    Pads are C2C13800 but you'd be nuts to buy them from Jag, can get aftermarket ones for $10
    The anti rattle spring & pin kit is C2C21784

    I put up some more pictures in the previous post as well.

    Another option is a transmission mounted park brake like on light/medium trucks. If you decide to go the hydro handbrake, I'd use a hydraulic lock system, pretty common system by all accounts and very effective.

    Yep, the one on my Discovery would lock all 4 wheels, was great.
    Part of the LR parts bin too.
    Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a Navara with the deadly ZD30
