HI Guy's
Anyone got a R/H rear caliper they would be willing to part with.

There was a pair fully (and seemingly properly) refurbished on Ebay recently for £800 or best offer.

Having just gone through the process of rebuilding my own I can well understand the price asked - it is extremely time consuming and I spent around £300 in parts alone. The calipers are straight forward it's the handbrake bits that are the buggers and I ended up biting the bullet buying new 'hangers' for those parts.

If there's a next time I will send them off to Classicar Automotive instead and just pay the price.
