Thanks Tony,

Your correct there are some boxes I have yet to delve into so I will try to get to them tomorrow afternoon. Meanwhile if you do have a spring shim that would be most useful.

Racing Brake have just come back to me and they have the plates in stock which I can pick up when I am in LA next month. Unless you manage to unearth one before then of course.

Dunno if it's your first/second time in LA Chris or if you go there often. If the former feel free to PM me roughly where you're staying and I'll be happy to suggest some good places to eat/drink (some with killer views) and good places to visit, especially if you'll be hiring a fun car out there. It's going to be a V8 minimum I assume? ;)

I was tempted to hire an R3 via Turo (https://turo.com/) last visit... then I came to my senses. There's a V12 Lambo Diablo VT that is occasionally available to pick up from LAX.

As my daily is a V8 there is less of a novelty in hiring one so we have gone for Group F Ford Escape or similar SUV, boring but practical.
Flying into San Francisco and down to Long Beach via Yosemite and Death Valley then back up the the coast via Monterey and Herst Castle and a few other places.

The pistons were removed and both they and the seals are all still fine so the piston were just refitted.
Discs were skimmed lightly to condition the surface and cure the judder under hard braking..
New front and rear 1144 pads fitted.
Trip over to Wales the other weekend and no cooling issues so it must have been a faulty radiator cap causing=the overheating at Croft.
Ordered ducting today for some front brake cooling pipes which I plan to install at Robs “action day” next Saturday.
