OK, take a Toyota 4-piston caliper or something similar to it where the caliper is two halves that bolt together with fluid passeges internally so that pistons on both ides receive equal hydraulic pressure. Now say I wanted to use this theoretical caliper on a rotor that was otherwise too thick to fit in the space that the caliper provided. Could I take the caliper apart, make a spacer plate to clamp between the two halves witht he appropriate holes in ti to allow fluid to flow, and therby have a wider space for a wider than intended rotor? The clamping force shoudl remain the same and the caliper shoudl be just as effective as otherwise, right?
