Either delcowizzid also got a new camera, or somebody else took those photos.
Looks good though, should go well once the hairdryer is hooked up.

LOL @ Camera comment ... i was thinking it too hahaha :P

im suprised the disc thats on there even works .... the V8 brakes are a fair bit bigger, when i was testing the vr calipers on the vn disc it sat a fair way out!

also delco im not sure if you know, but with them brakes, get i think its hx pads, give them a slight grind on the locating area and they fit straight in and give you about 5mm more meat on the inside of the disc ....

i have pics if you want more info.

Well sounds like you were able to save it. And your alright of course couldn't afford to lose your wealth of knowledge.

:hmm: Think I might go buy a fire extinguisher after yours and Holden 202 brothers going up in flames. Not a pretty look
