    Haven't done much on the old thing lately, got a spare wiper motor and some 2.5tdi calipers and carriers to upgrade to vented disc's. Cleaned up with a wire wheel. The pistons went back nicely, bleed nipples and pipes all undone. Painted with some horrible Halfords caliper paint I got in 2017, wish i'd got black. Click image for larger version.

    Its not a new one Arf its the reg of the scrap one I've been harvesting for the past 9 months in the local scrappy. Kept the plate as the factors can bring up its details when quoted. Toying with having the seats and back bumper as i'm £120 in credit for some wheels we had which wont fit either van or the corrado. And there's still 5 standard wheels there with good tyres they want 20 a wheel for. You gotta love a scrap yard. Perhaps I should make my own.

    Hopefully the red wont show much with the standard "new banded"

    Thought they looked better in the natural wired off state, Is there caliper lacquer available? They may have looked better that way.
