Dear Welder Series… Pieces out of caliper bracket kit?

Dear Welder Series…
I’m kinda into an off the wall project.. Well outta the norm anyhow. I am looking at your brake caliper brackets. http://welderseries.com/brake-kit-plates/
I am working on a 1951 Dodge Meadowbrook. I am using Ford explorer rotors and factory hubs. I also have ’93 S-10 calipers 5.5″ guide bolt centers. I am gonna make a custom plate of 3/8″ steel for my spindle to weld your bracket to. I’ll hang the loaded calipers on the rotor with your bracket attached and tack weld them together. Them remove and fully weld. Question 1: Would the Ford or GM matter? As it is not a MII. (Would prefer the GM as it is cheaper.) Question 2: Will your brackets fit these calipers? A side note, I know there are brackets pre-made out there to do this swap but I am a cheap somebody! Most all my parts are salvaged parts. You guys make the THICKEST brackets that I have found! To me that=STRENGTH!
Thank you for your time and I’ll be looking forward to your reply! Matthew

Dear Matthew…
Matt, this sounds like a great project. You are making use of our kit parts the way we imagined when we thought of starting Welder Series!

The GM plate would be fine.

Our brackets are made for the 5.5″ pin centers.

Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.
