Front Suspenson and Brakes Overhaul

Finally the Gaz Gold coil-over suspension has arrived.  These are 2-way adjustable (height and dampening) and come as complete units with springs. Removing the old brake pads took several hours due to he pins being rusted in.  The pads and discs have clearly have not been replaced for a long time.  

The suspension units were fitted and adjusted to give the maximum negative camber possible, followed by replacement standard vented discs.

The standard 'Big Red' Bembo 4 Pot callipers were cleaned up.  The the retaining bracket and pins had all the rust sanded off and were painted in aluminium rust proof paint.  Mintex racing brake pads were fitted.

Final setup which took virtually a whole day to complete.
