I have bought some brembo rear hand brake calipers off a Ferrari 360 so I can now get my rear brake set up sorted.

I also fitted my new mfsw not working yet though

Not normally a fan of black wheels, Matt satin or gloss.

However....

This look amazing!!

Yeah I wasn't sure on satin black either. But after the satin black primer went on it confirmed it for me.

Awesome!

Did you then clear coat these to seal them? Or are they just bare paint?

Haven't painted them yet, that's only primer. They will be all flatted down, re-prime, flat again then paint and clear coat.

loving the speedlines, and your brake package is serious!
is it not going to be overkill? is the master cyclinder up to the job?

Master should be fine I hope. might need a adjustable biass valve? As I don't know if it will have to much rear braking.

Finished one wheel, all bolts torqued down and all sealed up using poor boys wheel sealent.

Great build. Love the colour (but I would say that as mine is the same!) Do you have any more info on fitting your DAB aerial- I see on some other posts that the DAB aerial can be located in the wing mirror but yours looks to be roof mounted.

Awsome Caddy you are running there!
I´d like to ask where you bought, if you bought and what you bought to be able to fit the 18Z calipers in the front?
I´ve just bought a pair of calipers that will go on to my Caddy, however I have understood that you are in need of some fitment parts...
Also it would be great if you could let me know what discs you are running...

Cheers from Sweden...
