Look like a great piece of engineering. I am sure it was a huge amount of work to get these completed, thank you for the effort - looking forward to the batch 2 order:thumb3:

Are you sending them, or do we arrange our own courier?
I'm looking at a courier price for everyone, will know more in a couple of days. Any delivery costs will be down to the buyers of the discs.

My apologies to anyone I haven't replied to their PM - I'm working through them and there are quite a lot!

Yep I am going to have a mate receive three sets of these from Mark before Sunday. I will distribute when I get back from the north.

Top job Mark, they look amazing!

I will do this tomorrow Danny. I will also check to see if I can get a good rate to send internationally as I'm close to sorting a very favourable rate for UK addresses
This would be great, I will be waiting for further news :)

Phil, Im aware Maff has not had time to respond to my PM. I have been asked by Roberto (Italian member) to take his down to his inlaws here in Bristol. If you have sets due to come to you could you add his to the pile and I will collect from yours?

Also heading North next week so happy to fill the boot with those required for Lancashire Cumbria and the NE.

Delivery update:

A friend of mine has allowed me to use his business courier rate. The discs will be moving to his warehouse in the next couple of days so they can be sent from there - this means I can send them out from early next week.

The cost for 4 discs to a UK address is £12.50 including VAT which I think is excellent!

Please let me know via PM if you want to take advantage of this. I will also be sending this information via PM to everyone.

I will contact Mark and ask him to add another set to the drop off.

I had 20 minutes earlier, so chucked on a front disc:

New vs. old - the old disc is 'titanic spec' from my black GS.
The quality of the new disc is notable - anti-corrosion coating on the hub and around the perimeter edge of the disc, larger diameter holes (F550 spec) and holes are countersunk to help resist cracking and build-up of dirt/dust.

Old disc removed and hub cleaned up with a wire brush:

Disc bolted in place on hub:

Caliper refitted:

New pads fitted:

Wheel back on and looking much better:

I'll be back out first thing to fit the remaining 3 discs, then I have to do it all again with the yellow GS!
