    yeah I'm keen to see what the difference will be.
    The master cylinder took a whole 5 minutes to remove and refit, the front brake line took about an hour, becoause of the little room, and, the flare nut was rounded off. So out came the dremel and i cut the line close to the flare nut and then i could remove the entire front flexi line and remove the flare nut with ease. Now all i have to do is bleed the brakes.
    Then i might remove the rear calipers and rebuild them. Not sure if i should do them or not though. But they have never been serviced...
    I still need to get a 80w or so panel and fit this to the roof rack and carpet my rear drawers, all before the end of the week.

    Yeah some plick thought it would be funny to mangle the front plate as it only has two bolts holding it in. So i thought if i need to order new plates ill get these.
    Now i have to wait for the missus to get home so i can bleed the brakes.

    So I've had a few days to allow the brakes to wear in. I must say its really good to have brakes that work. No more nose diving under brakes... The GU pulls up really nice now.
