Early 110, Rear Disc Brake Conversion Question

I was talking to a friend today who was telling me that an early 110 with Salisbury diff can easily be converted to disc brakes using Discovery front hubs and various other genuine Land Rover parts.
Did a search and saw a few question and answer threads covering the topic without a solution.
I know that some shops doing builds from RHD to LHD, just replace the RHD 110 front and rear diffs with Disco I diffs.

Does anyone know exactly which parts from a Disco I are required and what else has to be sourced to convert a drum brake salisbury rear diff from an early 110 to disc brakes?

There is a big thread. The best way IMHO is to buy new shafts and use the D1 hubs but you can use non-ABS RRC hubs with the original shafts if you machine the brackets.

You presume my internet skills are better than yours. They are probably worse. One of the tech guys will come along soon with a link.

All the parts to do it are not very expensive. I just bought what was needed and it was quite easy to install.

If you buy the 110 rear calipers you do not need to machine the caliper brackets. You can also delete the stone shields
