Default V8 Quattro Front UFO Brakes

Hi-I just purchased a 1990 V8 Quattro and think it's great. I do need some help on a couple of things immediately, however. It has, what are apparently called the UFO front brakes. These need to be replace now, before the rotors are destroyed; have pad, but have not been able to figure out how to get them installed. Does anyone have a step by step on how to do this?</P>

Additionally, sinec it will have a lot of miles put on it, the suggustion is to convert the front brakes converted to the non UFO type. I understand that the G60 package from a parts car is the way to go; is this correct? How difficult is teh conversion; and is there anything special needed; is it beyound the average DIYer's abilities? </P>

Thanks for any input on these items. </P>
