    Well, after many months of them collecting dust Iíll be doing my brakes tomorrow.


    Iíve upgraded my rear brake lines this morning and am all set now to do the fronts in the morning.


    Iíve got the following:



    The braided lines from 404 Not Found are 100% stainless steel, unlike most companyís which use zinc plating for the hose braiding and stainless end fittings - Iíve just these on all of my cars over the last 15 years and theyíve been absolutely flawless.

    The tape is still inside the calliper covering the pistons hence the sh!++y appearance - not that youíll see it once the pads are in anyway.

    Fitted pics to follow 👍🏻

    P.S.
    I will be selling my old Brembo 4 pots/345mm discs and (6months old/4K mileage) EBC yellow stuff pads soon - Iím open to sensible offers.

    Unfortunately I didnít take any images during the fitment stage as I was just too busy getting it done, however what I can say is this: what an easy and straight forward swap this was!
    bolt off and bolt on, it really was that simple.
    Once I get chance to give the car a good wash Iíll take some proper daylight photos.
    Brakes have got about 30 miles on them and theyíre starting to bed in very nicely, a slight press on the pedal and the power from them feels amazing. The old Brembos were good, but these feel in a different league.
