    I've only gone and picked up another bargain today!

    I managed to get hold of a set of LCR Brembo's and also a forge turbo hose for the measly sum of...

    £150! Lol! The calipers are in good condition but had a bit of lacquer peel so I've started stripping them back ready for a refurb. I only realy posted this to brag! Any way here's a couple of quick pics

    in the process of striping the second

    First one stripped and a pic of the hose

    Think I done quite well!

    Are you just stripping them with Nitromors Hoggy? I take it you'll rebuild them with new seals and stuff when you're finished. Never seen the caliper stripped into halves like that before. Good work :)

    Its not nitromorz mate it's some other stripper my dad got its bloody good stuff! the brakes were fitted with new seals not long ago so I've covered all the inside faces of the calipers and stripping the outside faces, the bloke I bought them from included new transfer tubes and new hoses from the back of the caliper to the little bracket thing. so I just snipped the transfers and separated the calipers for better access. Got a mate who's gunna check them over once ive rebuilt them before I get them fitted

    Did they come with a free pizza too, or is it just a cardboard box you're stripping them in? That'd be double-jammy.

    Hoggy what primer, paint etc you use? Also anything to note when stripping the calipers down? Did yours need anything doing to them?

    I used halfords paint Dani just regular primer, colour coat then laquer. No high temp stuff mate, I read a few how too on a scoot website and they had done the same. The colour I used is Seat Flash red and I think it's spot on

    The previous owner reliably informed me that they had new seals not long before I bought them. The dust seals also looked new so I took his word for it. They do work perfectly and I checked over them 500 miles after fitting and they are all good
