New Brakes on the everyday hack

New calipers and discs fitted

Old discs and calipers, standard Girling Oz market calipers

Discs and calipers ready for fitting. Discs are E30 BMW redrilled, Hub is standard with propshaft bolts used for attaching disc.

Quick job on sunday afternoon, changed the standard discs for 10.5 inch BMW vented discs and alloy 4 pot mazda calipers to increase braking ability. These were going on the 2.5PI but were surplus to requirements after the Nissan conversion.

Braking ability is reassuringly smoother and fade free now

My old Willwood calipers are on the market if anyone is interested
