Hi John

The brakes that I have resurrected for my sons bug were on my 1302 and my new 1303 for a while, both were 3 bolt struts. I'm going to fit them now to 2 bolt struts on my sons 1303.

Both cars use factory disc brake stub axles, so the caliper ears are cut off and the dust plate bolt are enlarged to M10.

I also fitted new rotors as I was worried that the excessive cross drilling could crack
