PostSubject: Some updates on teh Bus   Mon Jun 08, 2009 3:08 pm

I have never been a big fan of drum brakes and poking my head through the clouds so i decided something had to be done!

Its not quite finished, but this is what i started out with


I then bought and rebuilt these (944 calipers)

to give me this, I also fitted a red 9 design kit that i bought of Matty.

that gave me this!

Unfortunaly to get the bus to roll at that height would require a bit of tubbing, so up it goes Sad
while i was waiting on some braided lines, i decided to fit my rear disks and 4" droped swing arms


only problem is as nice as it looks I cant get my wheels on! so i either sell my 15s and get a set of 16" rims or well i dot know really lol

I still have the other side to do and sort out some problems with the rear disk kit, but I'm getting there........Slowly!!!

Mark - will the disc and hub drop down enough for clearance if you remove the bottom shock bolt? Smile A friend of mine has to do this on his splitty to get the rear wheels on/off Smile

worth a try!

P.S. i'm so jealous! it's going to be amazing Smile
