    AP 4-pots for my sunbeam?

    I've heard that mk2 fitment brakes will fit my sunbeam but can't find much info,

    I've been looking at this kit http://www.peterlloydrallying.co.uk/...roduct_id=1011

    Anyone know if it will fit?

    lots of sunbeam rally cars seem to have AP's but I can't find much more info.

    any help much appreciated.
    cheers

    Should fit no problem if you are using typical 2.8 Capri bilstein struts? And ford pcd hubs

    I have the calipers brand new to fit 13 in wheels you can space them to run 25mm discs or they fit 21mm discs. Was going on my Cortina.

    if you use 15 inch wheels then there should be no issues. The problem come with using standard 13 inch Amil Sunbeam Lotus wheels as the profile of the inner part of the wheel makes it very tight. You will need to use spacers to give clearance

    Cheers, I'm using sunbeam struts, bilstein ones once I find some, the pcd is the same anyway, not sure about discs and bells tho.

    I thought you sold them mate, that's the same as the ones in the kit I believe. I think I'd prefer 25mm discs on the front. Probably overkill!

    Ill be using gp4 minilites, I want to stick to 13" as I have loads of them and tyres are slightly cheaper. Cheers

    My mate that said he wanted them got let down selling his brakes before I went on holiday. Then another bloke only wanted the discs and bells so I sold them and still have the calipers for sale.

    Be a good set of spares to keep!

    Some research and forum posts have confirmed (hopefully!) that the full kit I wanted will fit the sunbeam with no mods. So looks like ill go for that.

    Let me know if your coming this way at all mate, not that there's any hurry but I know your holding those bits for me still.
    Cheers

    Looking closer at the kit it's actually the same calipers as you have, I thought it was for the 25mm discs.

    How much you looking for for the pair of calipers?

    They are the same, they have to be spaced to fit the 25mm discs. 450 will buy them Mark
