Re: Stag Front Calipers & Disks - Again

I did this conversion in 2014 - the difference in braking is staggering although I did the rears as well and fitted stainless steel hoses too. I supply ADO16 stainless hoses and can do the Triumph hoses but have never got round to advertising :lol: I've attached the list of parts I purchased at the ...

Re: Milestone Classics

They've been going for quite a while... You'll always pay more from a dealer than through a private sale but then you'll also get a decent warranty by law We had an ado16.info club member who ended up with a warranty gearbox rebuild which meant engine out job when he bought a 1300 GT through a deale...

Following the restoration work on my 2.5 PI Estate the car was looked at closely by a few folk at the recent BMC / British L...
