Re: Failed MOT

Sounds like a reason to buy 6 pots and braided hoses dude. Oh and a new fog from Halfrauds.

braided hose set from camskill.co.uk around 40 i think depending on your car, and ive seen some gaitors that you can buy that come in two bits and glue together (try flea bay)

Re: Failed MOT

where are you ? I have a spare(old) rear fog from my import classic your welcome to that,
You can buy new rubber hoses for a few quid from motor factors but braided hoses would really make the brakes feel better so is a added bonus, same with the gaiters, if your keeping the car get the 1 part replacements, they are harder to fit but last, you can buy a spilt one you glue together but they dont last very long.
