A mate had them for a little while on his EL XR8 then sold it. Swapped my ED XR6 for them.

Short clip of my EB just having a run in the shed.
Hanging out to drive it again.
Havent since January :-(
I had plans of tidying up a few things on it while it was off the road but but I had a back operation at the end of Feb, so that put me out of action for a while.
Hopefully get to do a few things to it in the coming months finally.

Been a long time between drinks here.

Finally fitted up the 330mm brakes I've had for a while.

Being out've work while recovering from a lower back operation has held me and the bank balance back abit.

So I've been taking my sweet time fitting the kit and doing some other tidying up on the car.

I've sandblasted everything, painted everything, had new ball joints fitted, rebuilt the calipers myself, new bearings, crack tested the uprights (due to someone saying one was cracked, but wasn't), then got abit carried away with cleaning the wheel arch up and suddenly the guards were off, I was fixing rust and cleaning 22 years of dirt and after many years, fixed my aerial :thumbsup:

Also I sold my Show Wheels because they wouldn't clear the calipers of the new brakes, so I got my hands on some genuine EL GTs.
Now everything is fitted, the EL GTs rub on the upright :banghead: So planning on running 8mm spacers until I can afford the Weld Racing wheels I really want.

Here's some piccies.

Awesome dude! I know what it's like, I've done s**t all on my car's since AUG 2013 due to a workplace injury on my left knee. I'm on the mend now, finally, but it's still 6+ months off being able to do anything major.

I'm sure it will stop a lot better with the big brakes, a very worthwhile upgrade! I wish I had the coin to fit a setup similar to my EB Xr8, because from memory, the last time I did drive it (more than 18mths ago now), stopping quickly when I was up it wasn't exactly confidence inspiring.....

Cheers

ToranaGuy

Thanks ToranaGuy.
I had grand plans early last year to keep the car off the road for a while and basically tidy up everything I've neglected over the years, then had the back operation much sooner than expected, so I was out of action for months, then when I was able to start playing with the car again, the lack of employment wasn't good for the bank balance so I couldn't do the stuff I planned. Such is life.

But yeah, Im happy with the brakes, although I haven't driven the car yet lol.
Still plan to paint the rear guards, calipers etc. Maybe some sil rust repair and some other bits.
