I have a Westfield and already have various track tyres/wheels so 15" are my preferred choice, judging by my choice of Hydra OEM caliper from
Rally design on the back then I doubt 14" would fit without modifying the handbrake takeoff. A chap (Paul Collingwood) has 13" and they
look the business, I have no idea what rear calipers he has. I viewed his car last March at Cadwell.
I am not impressed with the RD Hydra caliper fit on the J15, I cannot find a decent route for the handbrake cable no matter how I try. It is somewhat
of a revelation that they are off a VW Passat. If I come across a better solution I will be dumping my Hydra calipers at least now I can advertise
them as being able to fit something when I put them on ebay. I have emailed Paul Collingwood to see what he did having fitted 13" wheels he must
have fitted a more compact unit.
Hummm...interesting, I've not thought of the cable route...I assumed it was ok for these calipers.
As for selling them on...I think you will find they are found on almost every vw / skoda / seat /Audi since 2000 with rear discs, they should sell
easily. Shame really because they are quite light being mostly alloy.
I am still to sort the handbrake cables but i know "i predict a riot" had a very neat solution. You dont reckon the IVA man will pick them
up in case they will foul a road hump and break ? as they are below the floor line do you ?
Excellent progressand a nice job youve overtaken me and ive been at it for 2 years plus !
The handbrake cables are not as low as the gearbox bits and anyway I am considering a plate to go over it all and add protection (possibly not for IVA
The temperature gauge is now sorted and I can move on to other things now.
I have added up the hours to go and I make it in excess of 120hrs, and that does not take into account sorting out that f... handbrake. I am off to
B&Q in the morning to find some bits to sort it out I hope!
