I have no idea about very early mk2's, but generally mk2's and early mk3, when they had brakes with disc size 239 mm, had strange construction - wheel bearing carrier which had two functions, and second one is brake caliper carrier, so the only removable item is caliper itself.

In any case I personally would look at getting A90 running gear and brakes - although in greece they might be hard to get...
