For your TR2? Are they not stamped? May have to clean them up to find it.

Found this for a TR3A. I have no idea if it applies to a TR2.

"Disc brake rotors for TR3A's were 12.7mm thickness new, and the minimum specified thickness to grind down to is 11.4mm. Sorry, I don't have the imperial sizes."

Thanks Carl . That's a great help. The rotors are off the TR3 I'm working on. We have been using millimeters in Canada since the 1980's so the measurements are perfect. I feel sheepish to say I've decided to go with the Toyota four pot calipers and rotors but that info on the TR3 rotors is hard to find and therefore useful and appreciated. The TR2 came with drums all round bur I put disc brakes on years ago cause I liked to go fast back then. Toyota calipers and rotors and pads were priced out here at 488 including tax and from Rock Auto in Wisconsin 263 canadian including tax. Also they shipped the stuff right to my door and that included shipping. Sometimes costs a lot to play cars in Canada Tim
