"I thought I'd just put the brakes together and drive it"...

Hi Pepe, my 5a has always had a poor handbrake. Even with new bits , ( cables, slaves, shims etc etc just rubbish) I've now got a rear disk conversion and its still poor so can only assume its also the handbrake lever mechanism etc etc.

Once the rads in and mounted, the new intercooler can mounted. Need to mount the new brake bias box, and make the opposite side wishbones before looking at rear trailing arms :)
