Cheers,
Scherrit.

I am lookin...

Re: Any experience of this company for parts?

yup I have ordered bits and bobs over the years, seemed good to me, they have an older car part ordering line, or used to anyway, with a helpful bloke (Martin??) on the other end. I kept an ancient Fiat Tempura (sp???) and a Nissan Sunny on the road for years beyond their recommended retirement ages...

Re: 2.0 laser street sleeper.

Thx, I am trying Rustoleum combicolour on the brembos, having been advised that it's a bit better than Hammerite which is what I use under the car mostly, or caliper paint from Halfrauds.

Seems pretty good so far.

jokes aside, ,I have some that are a truly crappy copy on my Laser. Very disappointing fit- I am going to try warming them up and closing down the profile a bit so they grip better.

brakes parts, most bits available off a Laser

front brake calipers, were new/prof refurbs about 2 yrs ago- alloy is no longer shiny alas from being outside front discs, OK but nothing special (haven't got them off the hubs yet so that might slow things down a bit- can't remember how much a bastard this is. rear drums and rear slaves, springs et...
