Crap, sorry for not replying guys.....

-Yup if was the style 68's that interfered with the callipers if the calliper was just a little bit more to the inside of the car or the offset of the wheels a little more to the outside it would have worked no problems (like 1 mm)

-I have not experienced any problems so far with the pads overlapping the discs a bit, this includes a couple of time braking from 200+ km/h, though I would think with sustained punishment this is not a good idea, but I am not putting the car on the track so I don't think it is a problem.

-Mounting brackets are the standard ones that came with the callipers.

-I first mounted them on the OEM discs just to test the concept and to see if everything is working, then the next day I got a set of new discs. This was only because the old discs had a bit of a ridge in them so this ridge was wearing into the pads.

Though I am still looking to source a set of bigger discs so that there is no overlap, but have not had much luck so far.

Hope I answered everything

Edit: Don't think I posted this here:
Fitment of the rear callipers:

The big problem is the discs, the offset of the rotor is just to far to the outside of the car for proper fitment to be possible, but have a possible lead on OEM discs that might just work, just need to get some used ones to test fit.
