r u serious? do you have the drawings for the pistons or just lucky guessing with a caliper gauge. i strongly advise you not to make these yourself, and definatly not from stainless steel. in a caliper that is designed to go with stainless pistons ok but these aren't and who can tell they won't lock up if the brakes get a bit hot..

you can still buy complete repair kits off the shelf, here for instance: http://dafhobby.nl/daf_produkt.php?idnr ... 2880-91%29

much cheaper than doing those on the lathe imo..

Well , most of the car guy recommend me to the foundry..it's hard to get one here with the same size , japanese piston have the same diameter but shorter on length. I'm trying to cut cost on the shipping. It cost me RM60 which is EUR 14. + shipping and tax would double the amount, and I already send it to the foundry. sm1 ..hope all goes well...

Pretty close to Birmingham but don't really have any parts for sale, were you after anything specifically?

Hello Zack, can you post a picture of the meter surround so I know which part you need ? I don't have many early-model parts. Also, can you give us a deadline to get things to Brum?

I could probably get hold of the turn signal cover (indicator) and will have a dashboard surround somewhere. When is your friend here?

Hello Zack, I don't think I have another surround like that but I can look in the roof in a couple of days. I definitely don't have the early-style indicator light covers.
