Re: Broom Yellow HLX

Another two hundred and forty faultless miles dropping a set of wheels of in Banbury, a vice in Cambridge and bringing a Punto GT drive shaft home for my mate in Huddersfield.

Great car.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

Well today has been eventful.

I have finally stripped the brakes from the Punto GT rear subframe in my shed.





Mess and faff to get those bloody things off.

Base plates are cleaned and painted...



...hangers are cleaned and sliders greased...



...ready for VHT paint when I refurbish the calipers.

Hang on a minute.



One caliper has a mousetrap spring to return the handbrake and the other has a coil spring.

Whenever this car was on the road it had an original GT3 caliper one side and a replacement Uno Turbo, GT1 or GT2 caliper the other.


That has ballsed up any ideas I had of either converting the Bravo to rear discs or using them on my next project.
