Hi

Wow you seem to be doing a proper job there!

I have just started the same on my '53 210 4-dr but will not strip down as far as you have.

Is that a pure bolt-on disc brake kit using the stock spindles? Can you recommend it for ease of fitting and who is the supplier please?

Do they also supply the Booster and other bits required for the conversion?

Whilst I am at it could you perhaps help with the following from your experience:

1. I am struggling to find a full set of front & rear quarter panel and mid + lower door chrome fender strips. Occasionally there are odd pieces on Ebay but I am trying to find a complete set. I am talking about the chrome strips only, that is all I need.

2. Have you any experience with aftermarket rims? I'd like to get 18" rims on there but not sure how wide or what the offset should be?

Any advise would be much appreciated.
