Default FD brakes fit a 79 FB?

Hi gents,

I've got plenty of parts left over from the FD donor car I used for my Miata conversion.

Will the brakes from the FD fit on the 1st gen 79 FB? Anyone done this yet? Planning to run the stock 13s rims/mags. The FD brakes are OEM stock units.

TIA

They will not fit 13" wheels.
Those FD brakes require at least 16" wheels.
