andy, i did it all years ago the rear was a kit that hope did and i picked it up second hand. Hope did me a custom front hub.It helps when you know the MD of hope and he lives in the same village.

martin ,the second caliper is piped in series with the first calipers bleed nipple outlet which is the same thread. the pressure is the same throughout the circuit so both discs are even. the brake lever has to move twice as much but is still minimal and has more feel with less effort needed with 1 or 2 fingers.

yep,if you click on and enlarge this pic you can see there are two banjo fittings on the left caliper.one is the inlet from the brake master cylinder the other supplies the right caliper.these are the only calipers you can use as they are not handed and so can be reversed on the other side.
