WANTED: Silver bonnet & rear calipers

Post by Kitch » Sun Jan 01, 2006 10:35 pm

Need a silver bonnet for my old estate that was successfully used to smash the rear end of a Freelander up, and if anyone has for some reason a good pair of rear calipers sat around I could find them a home!

Well I'm ok on calipers now thanks Mike, I was shocked to find they are actually in great condition and that the pads were on the metal.

The bonnet jsut needs to be the lighter silver, same as a 16v.

Hi Kitch,

The bonnet is off a 1991 16V, but IIRC there are several shades of grey.

Do you have a paint code?

Best place for it, I'd say.

Don't think I've ever seen a 19rd with ABS. :?:

Don't think there was any call for that personally, but hey.

It 's supposed to be a compliment.

F reg BXs that look as good as this, shouldn't be out on salted winter roads. IMHO

Oh.

So this is the first time I've felt like a twat this year......and it happened so quickly :lol:

My apologies. Its not actually that tidy in honesty, but its a great workhorse.

It doesn't have ABS. It has a big chip on the tailgate there, did have an Activa badge but that didn't improve the roll on it, so we put an ABS badge on to help the brakes out.....I think its worked.
