    Done all the bake calipers and the master cylinder on the lancia, excellent service but the turn around can be slow.

    I've used these before for calipers and was very happy with them.

    What car is it? Would you give it a go yourself? They're not that difficult.

    OP, reconditioned calipers may be available from your local motor factors at a reasonable cost. I was able to get Reconditioned Ford M16 calipers from my local Motor Factors for about a tenner more than the rebuild kit.

    While ye're all here - does anyone in Ireland do master cylinder sleeving? Cheers.

    The place I mentioned above does it anyway.

    Many thanks for the replies. I got a set of four repair kits on order from Bigg Redd for around E.50 '79 Merc W107 450slc.
