Since front discs were a factory option, simple answer is find a donor in the wrecking yard and pull the parts, then replace the wear items with new. I have no idea if there is a rear wheel conversion or not. My first instinct is to say contact Stainless Steel Brakes or Summit Racing and see what kits are available. They may have everything you need to do the conversion.

Scarebird sells an inexpensive kit that uses modern brake parts and mounting brakets that they sell
