Serious brake-bling going on here. And 'hard' lines and cables. were already fitted to the rolling chassis., The front brakes are AP5200 4 pot calipers with 330 mm discs.
Calipers/Discs/Pads: Calipers are of the huge AP Racing type; black and shiny. The pads are Pagid RSH 42. And the discs are 330 mm monsters. It's a pity to hide them behind the wheels though.
(I bet these will stop the car on a sixpence even if I use custard as brake fluid)
Bottom left bracket is where the caliper fits.
Just a couple of bolts and the flexible line on the back.
Brake Bleeding: One bleed nipple on each of the rear calipers and two on each of the front AP Racing, 4 pot calipers. For bleeding, I used a Gunson ‘Eezibleed”; this piece of kit is a work of engineering magic. None of this two-man open-and-close, up-and-down stuff ever again for me.
Tightened up all the unions and checked all the other connections, crossed my fingers, and filled up the reservoir… Then connected up the Eezibleed and followed the instructions…
I also, as a precaution, lined the bottom and sides of the compartment where the master cylinders live (in front of the driver), with kitchen foil, so if I ever do get a leak all the liquid will be contained and will not contaminate the GRP.
