There on Big thanks to LMStyling (Lee Mitchell), for spending quite a few hours yesterday on it. In the end, the whole rear beam had to come off, and 4 new drill hole bolts on either side being put in for the Astra hubs. Took bloody ages. Butttttt....

I've been running the V6 calipers on the wrong way for 2+ years, but no-ones ever noticed, not even me but the braided lines have been rubbing on the tyres. Got the rear discs on, went down the road, bang, blew a hole in a braided brake line Poor car was stuck outside last night at Lee's mum n dads house. Been all over the place and even had to end up borrowing Lee's new braided lines. Pedals really bad, goes to the floor at the mo, but, once thats sorted (got to re-bleed the system and eventually play with that damn bolt at the brake pedal), then im hoping to ahve a shit hot set of brakes. I can feel them biting hard, then the pedal just softens off to the floor and ruins it, but once its all done and right, its gonna be great

Nope, i mean left on the right and the right on the left.

Simple mistake. Only way you can tell is that the bleed nipple was at the bottom when it shud be at the top. Lee only noticed it cos he's seen it before and it was a bit tight to get the hose on to bleed the fronts

Ahh well, changed em over today anyway, no difference, just easier to bleed out.

Didn't make any matt really, although having the bleed nipple at the top means all the air can be realeased out, and being at the bottom, means that air will rise into the top of the caliper, and when u bleed them, its still gonna stick at the top.

As i say, some work to do on em yet, but i love em, always wanted rear disks on my corsa

Lee did not go to southend no.

Are they hydraulic or cable? If there hydraulic did you have to put in another servo and run lines to the back?
