Default Callipers

I have just got some callipers refurbished by Bigg Red Brakes in Worcester 01905428793. I am very impressed with service and quality of there work.
Fully rezinced in gold, new stainless steel pistons and full seal kit fitted. Also rezinced the original bolts. Cost was 115 per full set of callipers. Ate ones are for 1115DI and girling ones are for the RS1800. Some photos of them.

Those calipers look great; one of many things I need to do with mine. Plan to wait a bit longer before arranging as I don't want the new ones to seize in the wait.

Hello, its been several years since I updated this stalled restoration. I have taken the car apart again as there was some changes I wanted to do to try and get a better FACTORY finish on the car. I repainted the engine bay and under the boot floor and inside the rear chassis legs. Hope to start reassembling he car later this week. Here is some photos of the up date.
