Adding brakes.
360mm rotors need to resize to 352mm
I put an extra bolt to make changing the tires easier.







New bolts 1cm longer and adapters to avoid bolts from moving.







I am too lazy for making special adapters, so I just put bigger nuts over there. They must be 15mm or 14mm, don't remember.







Even the brake lines fit. But there I must figure something out, they vibrate and aluminium may break.





Because the rotors are now 352mm the brake pad's are like this:



A little hammerite. No rust needed.



Ready for test ride!!



Now, hard braking might throw the car on the roof!

You don't need the foam bumpstop with the bilsteins, they are internally built in.

Looks good!

Hi Macspring

No, I don't know. I had access to one carshop storage and I searched and searched until I found some kind of steering rack protection rubber what fits perfectly. Real rubber is not plastic I hope it will last.

Everybody who notice that I am doing something wrong, please let me know. I am not a car mechanic but I like to do it on my own. Sometimes my mistakes cost me a fortune, somtimes not, but self made well made! I am glad to share pictures and stuff... Maybe it helps someone somehow.

I'm going to be using these when I fit my KW's, they're really nice quality and should protect them from the salt and dirt on UK roads.

They look nice. But I am not sure how they will hold on all the movement, water and salt.

Like always, men first do the job and then read instruction

Rear instruction



Front instruction




So, still the rear ones need bump stops.
