    I might manage pads at a push but I couldn’t strip the front down nor do I want to!

    All finished. Some nice shiny and blue bits bolted on. Nice to meet fellow forum member @Markmec

    DS1.11 pads are incredible. Not sure what the bedding in process is but Christ they do grab. Glad I followed your advice @tombate911

    Couldn’t agree more Pav. Quality products that manage to squeeze in that small engine bay.

    Friday update:
    Have got a new Forge boost pipe to fit and a new wiper delete bung (never really liked the old one!) over the weekend. Will post photos if they get fitted but forecast is shocking:chris2:

    Possibly getting a new exhaust soon as well.:sunglasses:
