I bet the wife loves sharing the kitchen worktop with you, or are you posh and have a utility [img]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y147/suggy1/smile.gif[/img][/quote]
well i done the brake conversion yesterday and to be absolutely honest it was very simple and went without a single problem, took around 3.5 hours. i didnt get the chance to take any pics as i was against the weather, i had just put the centre caps back on the alloys when it started to p1ss down very heavy!! so far ive done 180 miles and the brakes feel ok, brake balance seems ok although i am going to have this tested. i dont have abs on my car so i was worried about the rears locking but i left the pressure conscious valves in place and i cant get the rears to lock at all!! next thing is a set of drilled and grooved discs to match the front and a full set of braided hoses to set it all off.
i will in the next few days however make a report on how its done and if anyone has any questions about how to do it they can fire away
it is the kitchen worktop indeed, shhh she doesnt know about it
the caliper that ive pictured above is now a spare one as i picked another 2 up but they are excellent condition compared to it. so ive now got 2 spare hubs and 2 spare calipers/carriers
