The front one is not bolt on.
You will need either to make custom brackets or grind the rotor down (bad idea)

Yes people have tired that. Do a quick search and you will find a couple of threads dedicated to different solutions to mounting the 205 calipers.

here's one example of a st205 front install by darthripley. Very well done I might add. It starts about halfway down the page.

Meurz where do you buy your stuff from? Particularly your gopher radiator and endless rear pads and
Rotors? Thanks

Are they a bolt on to a St165 as well? What size rim do you need to clear the brakes?

Few 16$, closer to 17 though. Well the 205 ran 16s @least
