    Default Pics of Brake bargin (i hope) from Ebay!!!

    Hi All,

    Collected my brakes today from Warrington.

    Knew they were gonna be big, but they are huge in the flesh!!



    Ex police car. Sale included all calipers, discs, hoses, carriers, pads, bolts etc. They are mucky, but when I have finished with them, they will be as good as new.

    Will need new pads, but discs are OK, & will get a good cleanup/blast/paint before fitting.

    Gonna take the rear calipers to BigRed & let him recon in gloss black. Gonna do the fronts myself, they seem easy enough.

    I paid £500 for the lot, it seemed like a good deal.

    Will have them on my car in 2 weeks

    Regards.

    Like I said, just mucky, both pistons come out when handbrake lever pressed, & both wind back in nicely. I gave one 2 mins with brake cleaner, & elbow grease, & already the beauty is shining thru.

    My 19" snowflakes are getting reconned in Anthracite, the last thing I am gonna do is let these brakes anywhere near my car, until they look as good, if not better, than they left the factory.

    Cheers
